Non-Slip Placemat with Table Setting Design - Dementia
the table is one of those tasks which are low risk and yet engages with
the mothering Instincts, so strong in women with Alzheimer's disease.
Engagement in 'mothering' or 'help around the home' type of tasks are
beneficial, and this non-slip placemat with table setting design enables
another simple and worthwhile activity.
The placemat is a simple
high contrast two color product which depicts where cutlery and
dinnerware are placed. The mat purposefully has no text so that it will
not be language restrictive. Its purpose is to encourage continuing
engagement of people with Alzheimer's in setting the table while
providing clues to aid the failing memory.
