The Skil-Care activity apron is appropriate for people with decreased cognitive function. The apron can be placed around the waist, on a table top, or on a wheelchair tray. The resident can be instructed to sense the various tactile surfaces for tactile stimulation and recognition. The resident should also be instructed to participate in the various tray activities including: threading of the grommets, buttoning and unbuttoning, closing and opening of the zipper, and opening and closing of the Velcro strap.
The activity apron can be laundered in an institutional laundry but should be dried at 180 Degrees F (82 Degrees C) or lower. The apron should be placed in a mesh laundry bag when laundering.
