Twiddlemitts Are Taking The Area By Storm!

WhatWeDoCTA2

So, what is a Twiddlemitt? Knitted mittens with items of varying texture attached inside and out. They are knitted by volunteers using bright coloured wool and lots of attachments. The aim is for dementia patients to keep their hands warm and have things to fiddle with – a common need in dementia. 

Benefits

Researchers have found that Twiddlemitts provide simple stimulation for people with dementia and other memory conditions. They minimise agitation, increase flexibility of the fingers and soothe fidgety hands.

The Alzheimer’s Society state that:

Sensory stimulation is important for people with dementia, and can improve wellbeing and quality of life. During the later stages of dementia, people often develop increased difficulties with reasoning and language, meaning that they may be unable to process information or communicate through words. They will still have some or all of their senses.

 http://www.alzheimers.org.uk/site/scripts/documents_info.php?documentID=115

Attached to the inside and outside of the Twiddlemitts can be pompoms, bells, zips, ribbons, buttons and beads. These items ensure that patients have a gentle, reassuring distraction.

Paula from Prama said:

“Twiddlemits have been invented to reduce agitation and restlessness, and therefore stress amongst dementia patients.

They can be invaluable to some patients as it reduces restlessness and increases their flexibility”

If you are interested in creating a Twiddlemitt for a dementia patient, the knitting pattern couldn’t be simpler:

  • For the cuff, cast on 40 stitches. You’ll either need to use chunky wool or 2 strands of double knitting wool.
  • For 11 inches, work in stocking stitch. Stocking stitch is where you alternate between plain and pearl.
  • For the muff body, continue in stocking stitch using leftovers of various textures of wool. You could use a combination of chunky and mohair.
  • Do this until it measures 23 inches and then cast off.
  • Neatly sew together and turn inside out.
  • Add your bits and bobs! (Ribbons, buttons etc)

FreeSubsidiesCTA2

Pramacare is hoping that volunteers will get out their needles and put their knitting skills to good use. You’ll just need your needles along with some wool and a variety of bits and bobs you can attach. Be creative, but just make sure each item is secure.

If you’ve made a Twiddlemitt for us, please pop in or send it to one of our offices or shops. Click here for contact details.
