Fidget Apron for Simple Mobile Activity

Fidget aprons are great for dementia or Alzheimer's patients, or even people who have had strokes who like to "fidget". They provide a simple, mobile activity for the busy hands of people with decreased cognitive skills. They give patients the joy of doing something with their hands.

Each one is unique based on the gadgets used. Items can be placed in a pocket, such as a scarf, for folding. You can also add zippers, buttons, ribbons/shoelaces, old bead necklaces, or other items you wish to recycle. These would be great to make for hospitals or nursing homes.

I thought this was such a wonderful idea and voted for it. Then I spoke to my daughter who works in a nursing home. I wanted to make several aprons and donate them for the patients. She said that it is a wonderful idea, but they could not give them to the patients. It seems that family members are very lawsuit-minded now a days and if a button came off or if they caught a finger in the zipper. Well, such a sad state, but anyway this is a great idea if your own family member is in need. (08/11/2009)

Great idea and if a family member sees someone else's loved one enjoying one of these in the nursing home, perhaps they will order or buy one for their own family's use. (08/11/2009)
