Knitting classes at Barton Brook for Dementia Awareness WeekToday at Barton Brook care home, which offers residential, nursing and residential memory care, knitting classes have been taking place, 

Marie from the wellbeing team has been organising therapeutic sessions for Residents, including Nellie, Joan, Babs and Brenda. 

Residents have enjoyed the refreshments given whilst knitting and said it has been lovely chatting with friends whilst knitting. 

Most said it was a relaxing activity and they have loved the outcome of their squares (see pictured), which has been designed into a lovely blanket. 

Marie said, “What a lovely class and the blanket made is great teamwork.”
