Touch Quilts Bring Comfort

On Thursday June 22nd, Norma Kirkby, Program Director at the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba presented Resident Council with 200 touch quilts for the residents of the Simkin Centre.

Touch quilts can bring comfort, happiness, enjoyment as well as lessen sadness and fear. Touch quilts may be used to warm a lap, keep hands busy, reminisce about crafts and fabrics from the past as well as spark conversation- each quilt is very unique!

Thank you to the Society for this precious gift.
