Let's Get Social!

“The knitting program has been wonderful for both patients and family members.  Socially, it gives the family members something to do. Often many of the moms won’t leave their room, but they will for a knitting class. Many friendships have been forged because of this program. It connects them to a community. Even patients who speak different languages have learned to knit — there is no language barrier. It is good to see patients in bed knitting and enjoying themselves.”
