Tarvin WI Craft Group have been busy knitting Twiddlemuffs for Dementia patients for the Countess of Chester Hospital. Twiddlemuffs are knitted handwarmers with all sorts of twiddly bits attached. Dementia patients who have restless fingers can find some comfort from twiddling with buttons, ribbons and beads. After contacting Sue Burton, dementia co-ordinator, three ladies from the group, Alison Holden, Edna Smith and Margaret Fallon took 13 Twiddlemuffs to Ward 50 at the hospital.
They were gratefully received by Sister Katie Mearns (navy uniform) and Nurse Jade Stoddard with Nurse Mandy Wilcox (not pictured). They will be shared between Wards 50 and 51 – the Dementia wards, with each patient taking one home when they are discharged.
