Touch quilts can bring comfort, happiness, enjoyment as well as lessen sadness and fear. Touch Quilts are crafted by many caring volunteers in the community. The hope is to provide a quilt to every person residing in a personal care home in Manitoba and to create a sense of community giving.

The Touch Quilt project is coordinated by Pat Myron and Andrea Frost. If you'd like to contact Pat or Andrea, please email touchquilts@alzheimer.mb.ca or call 204-943-6622 ext 232.


Presentations are made throughout the year to personal care homes in Manitoba. Touch Quilts are given to each resident.
