Aged care residents make 'fiddle quilts'
Residents of a local aged care home are making "fiddle quilts" for people living with memory loss.
Residents of Pam Palmer House at Peninsula Village have been making the fiddle quilts.
"These small quilts incorporate fabrics with different textures and pictures, and are highly visual and tactile, making them ideal for soothing and stimulating people living with memory loss," said chief executive Mr Colin Osborne.
"We hope to make a couple of these for our memory support units.
"Everyone has their jobs to do, from cutting out, to hand stitching to sewing on the machine.
"They even have homework to take home in their clip lock bags for next week."
