Though not something I ever tried with my loved one, I understand these fidget blankets can be particularly helpful in keeping a loved one's hands moving and keeping them occupied and active!
There are a wealth of results on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?autologin=true&q=fidget%20blanket&rs=sitelinks_searchbox

As a caregiver for my mom who has had early onset Alzheimers for 10 years now, I have found that there are wonderful engagement activities for every stage. Now that my mom is in the final stages, I love to use tactile activities like fidget blankets and pillows with her in addition to having her play with dolls for doll therapy. Doll therapy in Dementia is a terrific activity for providing joy and calm and I have found that my mom responds well to it. In the early stages, coloring was the most favorite activity for my mom.
