I would like to introduce
you to The Activity Companion™
a sensory table cover designed to help patients with Alzheimers',
Stroke, Dementia, Parkinsons, or in fact any related illness either
physical or mental that restricts patients by confining them to
bed or a chair.
The Activity Companion
came about from my first hand experience when my husband Raemond
developed Alzheimers disease and I cared for him for 10 years before
he was admitted to a Nursing Home in 1997.
the sadness, loneliness and feeling of helplessness that Carers, Relatives
and Friends endure when caring for a loved one with the above illnesses.
When my husband was in the Nursing Home he spent many hours in a restraining
chair and I witnessed the frustration and restlessness shown by him and
his fellow patients, especially during the afternoon.
I wanted to
do something about it but had no idea where to start. It was on my mind
constantly and in 1998 while watching the ANZAC Day March (returned
soldiers) in Sydney I began to think of Rae who served with
451 Squadron in the Middle East and his room mate Jack who flew Sunderland
Flying Boats in the Pacific during WWII and felt extremely proud of them.
They were my inspiration to do something positive.
If I was going
to pursue this project I wanted to do it well and it must never take the
patients dignity from them. Please visit the product page to see the end
result, I hope you like it. My warmest best wishes to you all and to your
The Anzac Day March is an annual event celebrating returned soldiers from
Australia and New Zealand
