Weighted blankets are great for reducing anxiety for anyone, but can be very useful to help dementia patients fall asleep. Before purchasing a weighted blanket for your loved one be sure to talk to his or her doctor to be sure it is safe. Things like respiratory issues or weakness may not make it a good fit. Look for lighter ones, like this one are usually a good fit.
