Learn how to sew a fidget blanket for dementia patients using materials that make this process as easy as possible for you, the crafter. Rather than making your own weighted insert, carefully measuring beads to fill each section, Fairfield has done that work for you. This allows you to concentrate on the beautiful blanket itself, with its calming fidget elements. This blanket is also helpful for those with autism and ADHD. Fairfield states, "Dementia patients and those with Autism and ADHD can benefit from the comforting, calming effect the weight provides. Touching and Fidgeting with the attached sensory elements on the blanket can elicit curiosity, spark memories and general awareness, as well as enhance focus and concentration."
