Donna on Questions | 15th June 2013

I desperately need ideas for one of my clients who's dementia is causing chaos. (She has pulled out all the plants in the garden including sprinkler systems, pulls of screen doors, curtain's etc..
Her vision is very poor and she chants loudly all day while pacing.
I've tried fidget boards, sensory aprons, folding washing, stuffed toys to cuddle while pacing all day, headphones Could anyone please suggest something else? I need to prevent an injury to herself or others. Thanks Donna. Activities Officer (Age Care Special Wing)

Hi Iris Maree, We accessed the horse and cart through Coleraine near Hamilton. I think it is a fair way from you however if you contacted the local riding schools or racing stables they would probably be able to get you I contact with someone. Carol
