Alzheimer touch quilts

Last week local volunteers for the Kenora-Rainy River Alzheimer Society put special touch quilts in local businesses and other public buildings. They were made by local quilters like Geraldine Blight, above, who made 12 of them. They are used to help by offering sensation of touch for people suffering with Alzheimer Disease. Each features different textures of fabric, buttons, zippers, etc. The quilts were displayed around town on Friday as part of World Alzheimer Awareness Day. All of them will be on display Oct. 11, 2012 at the Seniors Activity Depot in the old CN Station.
