Blackjack Bag

My Mom has dementia and is living in a care home.  She's almost 94 years old!  She can't do much these days unfortunately but can still be sort of guided along with familiar old games.  I made this bag for her and filled it with tons of old buttons (see earlier blog about those) and a deck of cards.  Put the label on so other visitors know what it's for in case they want to play with her.

She doesn't get many visitors these days as can't really carry on a conversation anymore.  Was the social life of the party before so is sad, but I'm just glad she still knows us :).
