Dementias, the most common form of which is Alzheimer’s disease, are characterized by memory loss and reduced motor, language and emotional skills. When combined with loss of motor skills, dementia can develop from Parkinson’s disease. Both diseases are neurocognitive disorders, i.e. brain disorders.

Confusion that often occurs in the course of the disease is an additional difficulty for those affected. The decline in brain performance is also seen in the social environment.

People with dementia and / or Parkinson’s lose control of their own body and mind and become more aggressive and depressed.

The use of a weighted blanket can make the body feel better and increase perception. The weight helps the body to shut down faster and enter sleep mode. The weight of a weighted blanket affects the muscles, tendons and joints so you can better control your body. Responsible for this are the happiness hormone serotonin and the sleep hormone melatonin, the release of which is promoted and restored to balance after the blanket is covered. In addition, the pressure of the blanket on the body reduces the level of cortisol (the so-called stress hormone). The muscles and nervous system are relaxed, anxiety and aggression are reduced, and the body can relieve tension more easily.

The summary:

  • Weighted blankets support the perception of your body.
  • Loss of control and aggression caused by impaired brain performance can be reduced by the weight of a weighted blanket.
