TWIDDLE MUFFS for people with dementia

Over the past few weeks WI members have been knitting Twiddle Muffs.  People with dementia often have restless hands and like to have something to keep their hands occupied. Twiddle Muffs provide a wonderful source of visual, tactile and sensory stimulation and at the same time keeping hands snug and warm.  Fidget quilts can also be used as an alternative – these are lap covers also with decorations to occupy restless hands.  We will be donating our items to Brighton Alzheimer’s Society who will use them for patients in their Dementia Cafes.
