Sensory Room Appeal: Can you help Bring Light to the Beacon?


Twiddlemitts are knitted cuffs which have a variety of textures and are adorned with items to twiddle or fiddle with, as a distraction or to calm anxiety often experienced by people with dementia. Since we launched the twiddlemitt movement in 2016 we have received hundreds of donations of twiddlemitts which we distribute via our Memory Clinic and on inpatient wards at our community hospitals. 

If you would like to knit or crochet a twiddlemitt, you can find the basic pattern here - the beauty of the twiddlemitt is that they are as individual as the person making it and those receiving them, so let your imagination run wild. All we ask is that any adornments are securely stitched onto the mitt. 

Need some inspiration? Take a look at some of the twiddlemitts we have received!



When your twiddlemitt is complete please get in touch! Thank you to everyone who has supported this initiative so far, you really have brought joy to our patients.
