Welcome to our site!
Dabblesack's mission is to provide a curated collection of engaging and purposeful activities for seniors, including those living with dementia/Alzheimer's.
As two occupational therapists with over 65 years of combined experience, we have always considered it an honor to be welcomed into our patients' lives as they shared their life experiences, interests, and hobbies with us. We have witnessed their victories and challenges, and, through it all, we have seen how purposeful activity can be a valuable tool for wellness.
For the past 25+ years, we have worked in home-care settings (including visiting patients in private homes, assisted living facilities, and skilled nursing facilities). We also have many years of experience working in hospitals and out-patient facilities. The people we have treated throughout the years are truly the inspiration for the founding of Dabblesack.
We have often been asked about resources for senior activities, and this has also contributed to the creation of Dabblesack. We know the importance of staying active, whether you are working on a puzzle or participating in small or large group activities. The benefits are far-reaching! Sitting down to work on an art or craft project can be very relaxing. (We know why adult coloring books have become so popular!) Getting involved in a fun group game is energizing. Learning something new and challenging your mind is stimulating. Receiving a gentle hand massage with a calming scented lotion is soothing. Working on a community service project is heartwarming. We also know that visits from friends, caregivers, and family (including younger members) can be more enjoyable when activities are involved.
We love to brainstorm and collaborate with others on new ideas as Dabblesack continues to grow and develop. Our newest Dabbler has a background in law, financial technology and data. Drawing upon her background and experience at two other online ventures, she brings a new perspective to our team. We also love to work with enthusiastic vendors as we search for innovative and unique items to include in our collection.
We hope to inspire you to bring new, creative, challenging, fun, empowering, or even zen-like leisure-time activities into your life. Creating better moments is what Dabbesack is all about.
Your package is sent with love. You deserve nothing less.
❤️ Rebecca, Robyn, and Janet
