Our Sewing Ladies are busy with a new project, making activity pillows for the Geropsychiatric Unit (GPU). These are incredibly useful items for patients with dementia, allowing the person to have tactile experiences that are calming for them. As you see from the picture, these pillows have many different fabrics, ribbons and ties. Specifically made with direction from the psychiatric care team of the Geropsychiatric Unit, the Sewing Ladies have a goal of making 100 of these activity pillows.
