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.

There are so many ideas on Pinterest for this...I am assuming you wanted one geared to an adult...but they have tons for kids also.
This was one I had bookmarked:
My only suggestion is that I learned it is important to only have them be used under supervision so if something accident comes off there is no risk for choking or if you use zippers as an activity, that the senior doesn't get delicate skin caught in it by accident.
