Testimonial for Weighted Blanket use with Geriatric Patients
As an Occupational Therapist working in continuing care, I am often faced with difficult cases of complex senior’s mental health. When Hippo Hug’s postcard landed on my desk with information about weighted products, I was really intrigued and wanted to know more about this intervention.
When I contacted Leslie, she was more than willing to send me research and answer any questions I had. Leslie has been great to deal with not only customizing products to our resident’s needs but also clearly communicating cost and what is available. I have advocated for this products use in our facility and currently have one weighted blanket for the sole purpose of trialling and demonstrating effectiveness to client’s and their families.
I have currently had success with three of my clients using either the weighted animal or weighted lap blanket. Outcomes noted have been a decrease in vocalizations, PRN medication use and overall decrease in agitation levels. These have been exciting and welcoming outcomes and I plan to continue to work with Hippo Hug.
