There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

activity towel

I made mom a activity towel. I got the idea from The Alzheimers store. They have great stuff but I can't afford them. Anyway you can buy quilts with differant textures and things on them for your loved one to touch. It keeps them busy and gives them something to do. I made a towel . I attached pot holders made of differant materals and a few buttons. She will pull at the buttons or just touch the pot holders. She does not play with it for long but it keeps her arms warm when she is not playing with it.
You can also get no rinse shampoo from the Alzheimers store if you can't find it had your local drug store. That stuff is great. Check them out online.
