Many thanks to the South Shore Stitchers Quilt Guild of Tuckahoe, who made 40 fidget blankets for our patients affected by Alzheimer’s or Dementia. Those diagnosed with this disease can become easily restless. The blanket provides a happy distraction or redirection.

Angelic Health Hospice offers thanks to the members of South Shore Stitchers Quilt Guild of Tuckahoe, who made 40 fidget blankets for patients affected by Alzheimer’s or dementia. Those diagnosed with this disease can become easily restless. The blanket provides a happy distraction or redirection.

Angelic Health volunteer Rich Hawthorne, of Upper Township, presented patient Tony Genaro, 88 year old Cape May County resident, with the first fidget blanket last week. Genaro keeps the blanket with him wherever he goes.
