Knitting for Dementia

Back in October the team at Richard Lloyd Funeral Services asked for help from the local community to create twiddle muffs, these are hand warming devices with different and unique sensory experiences that are designed to help people living with Alzheimer’s or Dementia as they often have restless hands.

They can help to reduce anxiety and promote calm whilst providing sensory stimulation through the appendages including ribbons, buttons or beads which can be sown on.

Several kind locals visited the branch to donate homemade twiddle muffs which have since been donated to Austen House Care Home.

Thank you to Karen and the team for all their efforts and the kind people of Woodley for being so generous with their time, resources and knitting abilities.
