Donation of 'Twiddle Mitts' help soothe the residents at South Park

Living with a progressive disease such as Alzheimer’s, struggling to communicate how you feel can sometimes leave people feeling anxious, stressed or frustrated.

To try an alleviate some of this anxiety, a relative of one of the residents at South Park Care Home in York donated some ‘twiddle mitts’ for the residents to use.

‘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.

Joanne Fisher, Home Manger, said: “I want to thank our Kim for this kind donation. It’s gratefully received as it will enhance the lives of our residents that live with this disease. The mitts have gone down a great success with the residents.”
