'A different sense'
Barb Hellyer making ‘touch quilts’ for Homestead Assisted Living’s memory-care unit
A simple touch can go a long way — even with a quilt.
Barb Hellyer, 83, a resident at Homestead Assisted Living in Osceola, is making "touch quilts" for use in the assisted-living's new memory-care unit, which is currently being built. The unit focuses on patients with Alzheimer's and dementia.
"Touch," or sensory quilts, use squares of different fabrics throughout the quilts.
