Suffering from a progressive disease such as Alzheimer’s, struggling to communicate how you feel can sometimes leave people feeling anxious, stressed or frustrated.
To try and alleviate some of this anxiety a local sheltered housing complex in Donaghadee donated some ‘twiddle mitts’ for residents at Edgewater Lodge Care Home to use.
Vera Ribero, Home Manger at Edgewater Lodge, said: “I want to thank Edna Higgins and the rest of the complex for this kind donation. It’s gratefully received as it will enhance the lives of our residents that live with this disease. It also helps us here at Edgewater to continue to build our relationships with the local community.”
‘Twiddle mitts’ or ‘memory mitts’ as they’re often called are simply knitted cuffs, with a range of items, including ribbons, buttons or beads on, that the residents can twiddle to relive anxiety.
