The Fidget Quilt Project for Alzheimers and Dementia Patients

Dedicated in Honor of Jerre Murray

Jerre Murray, before she suffered from Alzheimers, actively served her community. Her daughter Cyndee Foley a member of the Eastside Day Neighborhood Group was given a fidget quilt for her mother by Jean Davis of Yuma whose church made them for Alzheimer and dementia patients. Cyndee took this on as a special project. Her church sewing group made some quilts and Cyndee wanted to pass it on to the Tucson Chapter of ASG so more people could benefit from it. Jerre passed away this month. It was decided to dedicate this project in her honor.

A fidget quilt is a small quilt with several objects or textures attached. It helps to entertain, stimlate or comfort the patient. You can see some of the quilts made the members of the Northwest Neghborhood Group featured on this page. These quilts will be given to friends and family members who suffer from Alzheimers or Dementia.
