Fiddle Twiddle Muffs to help people with Dementia

People with dementia often have restless hands and like to have something to keep their hands occupied. A fiddle muff provides a powerful visual , tactile and sensory stimulation and keeps hands snug and warm at the same time.

We’d be delighted if any willing knitters or crocheters could help us to create more fiddle muffs as part of our ongoing commitment to ensure people with dementia are supported to live life to their full potential.


We take a personal and sensitive approach to dementia care as we understand that the symptoms vary quite considerably from person to person. Our carers are fully trained in dementia care, and we encourage the use of many specialist methods and techniques to help keep your loved one content and engaged. We spend a great deal of time getting to know the person in our care – what makes them tick, what their interests are, and how they like things to be.
