Members of the Wanstead Women's Institute have created a number of 'twiddlemuffs' – blankets with sensory items attached that provide a source of visual or tactile stimulation – for local hospital patients.

"They can be a source of comfort and activity for individuals with dementia who might otherwise feel agitated during a hospital stay," said a spokesperson for Goodmayes Hospital, which received the donations last month.

Each of the twiddlemuffs provided will be kept by an individual patient.
