Description:

The Olive Branch, a fair trade boutique and outreach center located at 11160 Perry Hwy. (off Fieldview Rd. across from Jiffy Lube) in Wexford, is making and giving free "Fidget Quilts" to families in the area caring for dementia and Alzheimer's patients. The quilt is a small lap quilt that provides sensory and tactile stimulation for the restless or "fidgety" hands of someone with Alzheimer's or related dementia. To request a quilt or for more information, visit the shop or call 724-799-8700
