Vroetelkombersies vir Alzheimerlyers

Vroetelkombersies vir Alzheimerlyers

Gansbaai Courant

Alzheimerlyers is bekend daarvoor dat hulle graag met hul hande vroetel. Dit het sowat 8 van Overberg Kwiltersgilde se dames laat besluit om “vroetelkombersies” vir die winter te maak, wat deur Alzheimerlyers gebruik kan word. ‘n Verskeidenheid van wol- en sagte items, selfs klein teddiebeertjies, word stewig op die kombersies vasgewerk. Terselfdertyd word katoenmateriaal vir die bokant en flenniemateriaal vir die onderkant gebruik sodat dit lekker warm kan wees. “Hierdie verskeidenheid van sagte items in helder kleure, is dan items waarmee Alzheimerlyers kan ‘speel’, aangesien dit aanloklik lyk en sag, maar duidelik voelbaar is,” vertel Yvonne Joubert van die gilde. Overberg Kwiltersgilde pak jaarliks ‘n liefdadigheidsprojek aan, wat gewoonlik ‘n groot kwiltwerk is wat uitgeloot word vir fondsinsameling ten bate van ‘n liefdadigheidsorganisasie.

“Vanjaar het ons besluit om iets anders te doen en net die dames wat wou, het ingeskakel by die groepie wat die kombersies wou maak,” het Yvonne gesê. Enkele van hierdie “vroetelkombersies” word, waar nodig, in Gansbaai uitgedeel, maar die res word almal aan Lettie Theron Tehuis vir Bejaardes se Alzheimer-afdeling geskenk om dit oordeelkundig te versprei.
