Happy Hookers Crochet Group

Hot Springs Village is home to the Happy Hookers crochet group. Recently, the Hot Springs Branch Office of Hospice Home Care has been the proud recipient of stacks and stacks of “Twiddle Muffs”. These are special crochet items for hospice patients living with Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

What are Twiddle Muffs?

Twiddle Muffs satisfy a variety of sensory needs by Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients by helping them keep their hands busy. It is common for Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients to have restless hands, and the muffs help keep hands snug and warm, as well as provide comfort and calm by decreasing agitation and diverting the patient from confusing or anxious situations.

Materials are provided for the group by many different donors, including Hospice Home Care. The Happy Hookers bring their own knitting and crochet needles, and sometimes join forces with the other Village crochet group, the Village Pine Needler’s Knitting Group to make Twiddle Muffs.

Comfort and peace on the end of life’s journey

Facing the end of life can be hard. Facing it alone, in the absence of family, friends, financial resources and qualified caregivers, is even harder.

The Tribute of Life Foundation believes that everyone deserves to complete their journey in a warm, clean bed, surrounded by people who care deeply about meeting their medical, social, emotional and spiritual needs. Through our 'No One is Alone' initiative, we are committed to funding two beds in the Comfort Care Center for people who could not afford it otherwise.
