Having the ability to find items that are portable and able to go with the person from home to hospital, day centre, a holiday, car travel or simply from room to room is important for giving comfort to people that we support. The bud sensory cushion is a perfect solution for this and can be easily personalised to give additional reassurance and comfort. Designed by Find Memory care and UK charity 'Designability', this cushion is an excellent anxiety reducer that is also very discreet. The Bud cushion gives the user the ability to touch and fiddle with the sensory parts of the item and is a simple activity that can enhance conversation and communication.
Made from attractive and tactile fabrics, the cushion sits perfectly on the lap for ease of use and the fabric petals are great for peripheral neuropathy.
Glenn Knight, CEO of Training 2 CARE Group and Creator of the Dementia Interpreters course comments "One thing that many manufacturers sometimes forget is dignity and respect when designing items for people with dementia. Dementia, in the early stages, is often classed as a hidden disease and therefor people may not like to announce that they have had a diagnosis of dementia through the items they buy and use. The Bud Sensory Cushion really does protect them from announcing their vulnerability by being able to easily tuck away the personal items and insides to make it look like just another cushion. Fully portable, this item can go anywhere in a very discrete and confidence building manner".
