Twiddle Muffs Knitting Group

Caroline has launched a weekly knitting club at The Whittington Hospital, making ‘Twiddle Muffs’ for dementia sufferers.

Twiddle Muffs are small tubes of wool which can sit in patients hands or on their laps and are adorned with buttons, ribbons, bells and pompoms. They have proven popular with people with dementia who often have agitated hands. They are a great way to combat the restlessness and agitation that people with dementia can experience.
