Local WI delivers twiddle mitts to residents at Braywood Gardens, in Carlton, Nottingham
The Nottingham City Women’s Institute kindly got in touch with the team at Braywood Gardens to let them know that they had been knitting away some lovely twiddle mitts and would like to deliver them to the residents at the home.
Twiddle mitts are knitted mitts that have various items attached, such as ribbons, buttons, bells and a variety of textured fabrics. Residents with dementia often have restless hands, so the mitts are a great activity to keep hands occupied, and can provide tactile, sensory and visual stimulation. They can also help bring comfort to those who may be feeling anxious.
Lydia Morris, Customer Relationship Manager at Braywood Gardens, commented:
“The twiddle mitts are a fantastic and thoughtful gift for our residents. They have brought so much joy and the residents feel really valued. We are so grateful to the WI for supporting our residents and look forward to continuing to connect with them well into the future.”
Many residents at Braywood Gardens have lived in Carlton for several years and were active members of social groups within the area. This is why it is so lovely that a group such as the Women’s Institute have thought of the residents at Braywood Gardens, showing that residents will always be a part of the community.
