Make a snuggle bear fidget toy to help people living with Dementia

Category: Arts and Crafts

The Royal Free Hospital and Barnet Hospital are appealing to creative people who would like to knit a snuggle bear fidget toy for their patients living with Dementia.

Knitted items such as these give patients something to focus on by giving them something to do with their hands, and have proven to make a significant difference to stress levels. They are extremely popular, but we always need more!
