Activity / Fidget Aprons for Dementia / Head Trauma Patients
Added Jul 19, 2011
by Teresa Corso
Aprons made on behalf of Handmade by Junior League of Atlanta to be used as samples for ladies sewing aprons for Grady Hospital in Atlanta, GA to be given to patients suffering from dementia / head trauma. This is also a great item for a soldier who has experienced head trauma in combat.
Pattern attached as JPG (1 of 2 should be printed on 11×17, 2 of 2 on legal).
Kudos to Debbie Janson, Web Manager, ASG Tucson Chapter and Jody Elmer in Arizona who corresponded with me sharing their past apron pictures and a wealth of advice. Thanks Ladies!
