Touch Quilt Program

The Touch Quilt Program run by the Alzheimer Society of K-W provides, for persons with later-stage Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia, an item of comfort to hold and touch with their hands.

Touch Quilts are made with a variety of fabrics to provide the sensory stimulation that may help reduce stress and anxiety as well as provide a warm covering.

For more information on the Touch Program you may visit www.alzheimerkw.com and go to “How We Help” and then “Touch Quilt Program”.
