People with cognitive loss can find great comfort in something to play with and fiddle cushions, fiddle aprons and fiddle blankets for dementia patients are one of the most popular solutions. Dementia cushions and other sensory products may help alleviate stress and restlessness in dementia patients, people with Alzheimer's disease and can also help others who live with a disease or disability.
