At Medoris Care, we understand that some adults and children with learning disabilities can often have other conditions such as ADHD, behavioural difficulties, Dementia anxiety, and depression. We also understand that these added mental health conditions may cause them further distress.
That’s why, we have a range of stress-relief products to help support them in these moments.
Our ‘Feel and Touch’ Zip Feelie is a soft fleece square with tactile zips. It’s designed to give security and hold attention.
Firstly, it’s a tactile comforter that can be held in the hand for an immediate feeling of security. This safe feeling only increases as the comforter becomes more and more familiar.
Secondly, the zips help concentration. While one hand is being kept busy with the distraction of the zips, the other hand can focus on tasks such as holding a book, writing or drawing.
For some, maintaining this type of concentration would not be possible without the other hand being occupied.
Lastly, it only measures 23 cm x 25 cm, so it’s small enough to either be held in the hand for prolonged periods of time, or tucked away neatly for the moments when it’s needed the most.
Engaging sensory activity for individuals with dementia
Ideal for anyone living with dementia. Our 'Feel and Touch' zip feelie is a perfect tactile activity item to keep hands busy and alleviate stress.
What’s more, it has the added advantage of an anti-slip backing. This means it can be placed securely on a table, tray or any flat surface without slipping. Particularly helpful for those with a weakened grip.
All-in-all, we hope that our ‘Feel and Touch’ Zip Feelie becomes like a little best friend, giving comfort and care when it’s needed.
