Our Team Story
The Longest Day is the day of the year with the most light — the summer solstice. And it's the day I have committed to fight Alzheimer's disease! I’m participating in The Longest Day, a fundraising event to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
I know that others with Alzheimer's (like my mother) have fidgit-y fingers so these lap pad or pillow covers are my project for The Longest Day to help provide stimulation and comfort. They are also great for kids who might have a condition like autism or ADHD and need some weight to ground them and something to occupy busy hands.
Each pillow cover is unique and fits either a 10x18 weighted lap pad insert or a 12x16 small craft or travel pillow. They have a mitten clip to attach it to clothing or loop it over an armrest.
When you make a donation to my Longest Day page, please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for delivery by mail of your comfort pillow case to your residence or to a memory care facility of your choice. Or if you prefer, I can deliver it or mail it to local memory care facility. You may donate any amount but I request that a donation be more than $20 for a comfort pillow case.
I know of a person with late stage who received a pet comfort weighted pads and it meant so much to her, she just clung to it when things seemed uncertain or unfamiliar.
So together let's spread comfort and satisfy those busy fingers!
