Weighted blankets give you a feeling of a deep hug.
Weighted blankets are appropriate for use for everyone from children to the elderly.
Read below for how to choose the right blanket for your height and weight.
How to Choose the Right Blanket Weight for Seniors
The general rule is that a weighted blanket should be 10% of the user’s body weight.
Weaker seniors should use lighter blankets.
The weighted blanket really helps with sun downing, and the 5-8pm crying period some elders experience. “My mom says that she feels like someone is always touching her,” said LeMond.
How to Choose the Right Blanket Size for Seniors
For body coverage, get a “throw” or a “twin.” For bed coverage, get the correct size for your bed.
Do not get a blanket larger than your bed. A blanket that hangs over the bed’s sides will fall to the floor.
The drawbacks to Mosaic weighted blankets are true for all weighted blankets, not just Mosaic.
A healthy person should get a blanket that’s 10% of their body weight.
Weak users should get a blanket that’s about 5% of their body weight.
