Rendlesham Knit Blankets

The ladies that live here at Rendlesham have been busy knitting blankets for our dolls that live in the home, as they said they wanted to help with this project.

At Rendlesham we use doll therapy on our dementia residents. Because some individuals that live with dementia can suffer from distress dolls are used to help ease the burden by giving loved ones life-like dolls to love and care for. The dolls can become an integral part of a senior’s life and caring for the doll as they would care for a baby becomes a major part of their day to day responsibilities. Doll therapy, also known as cuddle therapy, may bring back some happy memories of early parenthood and help make seniors feel useful and needed.

They have also made twiddle muffs for the dementia residents, and they are now going to take on making clothes for the dolls. No job is too small!

Thank you ladies for all of your help!
