ALTERNATIVE THERAPY for DEMENTIA
SENSORY STIMULATION — GEL PADS
Squeezing and poking at the soft water-based gel contained in these pads to move the glitter and the objects around is almost mesmerizing.
These simple devices will provide hours of beneficial tactile and visual stimulation. Easy to care for, they wipe clean with household disinfecting cleaners. Just be sure to keep sharp objects away!
These pads can be warmed (in hot water) and chilled to provide an additional level of therapy – thermal therapy. The weight of the lap pads also provide sensory feedback that we know is beneficial and helps to ease restlessness.
