Sensory & Activity Objects Keeps Hands Busy
Alzheimer's can cause restless hands. Our Activity Pack can help!
Seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia may show anxiety or agitation through fidgety hands. Signs include pulling or rubbing at clothes or bedding, rubbing hands together, twisting fingers, wringing hands, and generally keeping hands in motion. Sensory therapy or fidget items are an effective way to reduce anxiety, calm nerves, and provide comfort. Our Fidget & Sensory Activity Packs contain simple, touch-based activities that help someone with Alzheimer’s keep hands busy in safe, soothing ways.
Each pack includes:
12" Liquid Touch Tile
Our fantastic liquid tile mats are portable and will encourage sensory integration and gross motor skills with their squishy and colorful moving liquid. A simple press on the mats gets the liquid color moving within. Loved-ones will be mesmerized by how the liquid moves. Set up on a table top with their anti-slip back side to prevent slipping. Safety tested. Non-toxic and super durable. Each tile measures 12” square. Colors may vary.
Crinkle Pad Set
A fun and audible solution to engage and grab attention. Assorted, colorful, textured fabrics contain a cellophane center that “crinkles” when it's grasped or touched for immediate cause and effect feedback. Use them to engage those who are withdrawn or as a basis for reminiscence and discussion. Also perfect for restless or curious hands that can pat, stroke, and fold. Durable grommets and a handy carabiner hold the 3 pads together making them super portable and easy to attach to belt loops, backpacks, walkers, and more. Pads measure approx. 8” square. Washable. Colors may vary.
