TEXTILES FOR PEOPLE WITH ALZHEIMER’S, WOVEN WITH A HELPING HAND
We curated artwork for a unit that provides care for people with Alzheimer’s & dementia. In the later stages, these diseases can lead to heightened sensory attraction to texture and colour. Art in Site commissioned local artist Alison Moger to produce a series of embroidered pieces for the ward.
Drawing on traditional domestic textile design, she produced over 50 pieces of embroidery, which feature illustrations of glimpsed life from the surrounding countryside.
A team of skilled local volunteers from the Embroidery Guild lent a helping hand, assisting Alison to produce the full batch of textiles.
