Help us make mats for local Alzheimer’s care facilities! These “Fidget Mats” are designed to safely comfort and entertain Alzheimer’s patients. Each mat contains a zipper, buttons, a pocket for a family photo, and a variety of textures. They can be used on a table, in a lap or tied around the patient’s waist as an apron.

As seen on Sewing with Nancy, our very own Marcia Engquist who designs Alzheimer Activity Aids, is leading a charity sew-in for Alzheimer Fidget Mats!
