Fidget Blanket Creator - Sacramento Public Library, CA
A Fidget Blanket is a lap-size blanket that provides sensory and tactile stimulation. Blankets are equipped with “fidget” objects such as buttons, ribbons, zippers, rings, buckles, shoelaces, and pockets for the user to touch and play with. Fidget blankets are ideal for those with restless hands, including people with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia.
Sacramento Public Library's Brain Health Initiative focuses on sharing information and resources related to Alzheimer’s disease and brain health. Fidget Blanket Workshops were included as part of the Brain Health Initiative for dementia caregivers to create Fidget Blankets for their loved ones. The Fidget Blankets that are created by volunteers will be donated to local memory care facilities.
