Residents can enjoy a “Knit ‘n’ Natter” at our weekly knitting group at St Mary’s Care Home. Recently we have been creating some wonderful woolly flower decorations for residents to personalise their rooms.
Liz, a resident at St Mary’s said; “I don’t know how to knit so I used a flower loom which was surprisingly easy. I made many of them in just a couple of sessions.”
Renee, also a St Mary’s resident added; “I used some of the flowers to make a bouquet of pink and white to match my bedroom.”
Knitting is great for improving residents’ coordination and cognitive skills and is just one of the many fun activities we offer at St Mary’s.
