Twiddlemuffs

Twiddlemuffs:   As part of their drive to improve experience for dementia patients, the Trust would like to provide all their dementia patients with a ‘twiddlemuff’. A twiddlemuff is a woollen muff, with twiddles such as buttons, beads or zips attached inside and out and is designed to provide a stimulation activity for the restless hands of disoriented or confused patients, particularly those with dementia. To avoid any risk of cross infection, each patient will receive their own twiddlemuff which they can take home with them after they leave hospital. This will mean we will need a constant supply to help all our patients and would be grateful if knitters or crocheters could pick up their needles and support.  Donations will be accepted at the main receptions of Ealing, Central Middlesex and Northwick Park Hospitals. Knitting patterns and further information are available here
