In early March, the knitters from ‘Her Cave’, a local women’s shed came to Arcare Kanwal to visit and donate some of their knitting to the clients.
They gave us twiddle muffs which is a hand muff with bits and bobs attached inside and out.
It is designed to provide stimulation for restless hands for anyone suffering from dementia.
The twiddle muffs were shared among the clients in the Darling community and it was a hit!
The clients loved how soft and colourful the twiddle muffs are. Some clients even pretended to be boxers and were doing left hooks and uppercuts.
