Biggin Hill Evening Women’s Institute (WI) recently made and donated sensory blankets for people with dementia attending MindCare centres. Some WI members visited the Beckenham MindCare Centre on 11th February to present the blankets and experience how we support people with dementia.

Sensory blankets are very useful to engage people with dementia in social conversation, talk about long term memories and stimulate the senses of touch and sight.

MindCare Dementia Support extends its gratitude to Biggin Hill Evening WI for making and donating these valued sensory blankets.
