Before they passed away, both my grandfather and father had dementia. Although its onset probably came much sooner than our family recognized, my dad's decline seemed so very swift. It was heart-wrenching to travel to the nursing home in Missouri to visit him and realize that he didn't know me anymore. He seemed agitated as his hands fidgeted. If only I had known about fidget quilts at that time, I would have loved to create one to help soothe him. These quilts help patients feel more relaxed, thereby improving well-being. The different textures and shapes engage and stimulate the brain.

Lamar Community College and the LCC Foundation continually support area students through ongoing scholarship and financial aid opportunities.  Multiple scholarships are still available for the upcoming academic year, including two significant scholarships: the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI) funds and the Quarterly Forum Scholarship for service area students of all ages.

When layered with other financial aid, these scholarships have the potential to cover most, if not all, of a student's cost of attending college.
