The fidget apron may have working zippers, buttons with button holes, ribbons to tie and untie, belts to buckle and unbuckle, fabrics that are soothing to feel. The choices are endless. The fidget apron is a perfect gift idea for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.
Giving a special gift to someone with these conditions can be tough, but you can be confident this will be a welcome, comforting and enjoyable choice. As a caregiver, it might be hard to believe there is something that can keep your loved one occupied for hours. But it’s true! A fidget apron can be a soothing solution to the anxiety and restlessness that comes with Alzheimer’s, dementia and similar conditions. Fidget aprons also help distract from worrisome self-harming behaviors. Finally, the fabric prints and textures can evoke fond memories, and the soft fabric and silky ribbons and trims are soothing.
