Our Campaign to Support Dementia is a Knitting Success

May 18, 2017, By

LEADING LAW FIRM, Slater Heelis LLP has provided local care home residents living with dementia therapeutic support as a result of its innovative Twiddlemuff campaign.

To support National Dementia Awareness Week, the legal practice reached out to local knitting enthusiasts and asked them to create a Twiddlemuff; a specially designed hand muff that provides stimulation activity for restless hands for patients suffering from dementia.

After a month of knitting, the firm was inundated with Twiddlemuffs hand-made by members of the local community.

Partners Chris Partington and Georgina Bradshaw donated the collection of Twiddlemuffs to several local care homes, including Faversham House in Urmston, Sunrise Senior Living in Hale Barns and Urmston Manor, and The Knoll Care Partnership.

Chris said:

“Our specialist team work closely with a number of local care homes to provide support on a range of issues, from wills and the probate process to Court of Protection hearings and Lasting Power of Attorney.

“The support for the campaign has been amazing. Twiddlemuffs take a lot of time and effort to create and we would like to thank all of those people who have got involved.

“We hope that the Twiddlemuffs we donated will go a long way to help people living with dementia.”

Twiddlemuffs are still welcome to support the cause and can be donated by dropping them off in reception at Slater Heelis’ Sale high street location on 16 School Road, Sale M33 7XP.
