Welcome to Keeping Busy

Twiddle Classic

Twiddles are a unique aid that can really help people with later stage dementia. Instead of playing with their straps or taking their shoes and socks off, Twiddles give the person something engaging to hold and manipulate. They help maintain flexibility by keeping the hands active and engaged, while soothing the person and helping to keep them calm.

The Classic Twiddle is, well, classic. It's the original design and features a luxurious lavender blue outside with rings of fringe to keep anyone occupied.

Details

Each Twiddle® has three attachments on the outside, and a squeezable soft plastic orbit ball on the inside. The attachments include a sealed satin bag containing movable marbles, a strand of textured ribbons, a loop of colorful wooden beads, as well as a satin or faux suede pocket for personal essentials and a Velcro tab patch. Plush fabric in the form of a muff provides warmth for the hands. In addition to tactile and mental stimulation, all offer exercise for the hands as well as relief from arthritis.

There are four different Twiddles to choose from, allowing you to pick the one that best meets the interests of the person.

All Twiddles® are machine washable and dryer-friendly (remove the "gadgets" first).

Suitable For: Later stage dementia as well as anyone who tends to fidget with straps, clothing, etc.

Gives alzheimers patient something to do with her hands. I recommend this for people with dementia that have the repetative motions like head face scratching. I tell her it will keep her hands warm or just ask her to hold it for me and she starts figiting away with it. (Posted on 11/23/2016)
A GREAT purchase for for my mom.Review by JP

After reading the reviews, I just purchased this for my mom who is entering into late stage Alzheimer's. I noticed her having more behaviors that were tactile in nature (constantly fussing with buttons, ties, etc on her clothes). Her hands also tend to get very cold. The item arrived within the week and she immediately took to it. She spends a lot of time playing with the ribbons, the fringe, working the Velcro, etc., and the other night without prompting she had her hands tucked inside to keep them warm. I think it's a GREAT product and I'm very pleased with it. I would highly recommend it for those with late-middle stage and advanced dementia who have busy hands. (Posted on 10/6/2016)

My mom is in late stage and we don't get much communication at this point. I have a sister that works in the facility where my mom is staying. She said she puts the TwiddleMuff in her right hand and keeps it. The facility is ordering some for their alzheimers patients. (Posted on 7/13/2016)

My mom has Stage IV Alzheimer's. At this point, it was hard to find a meaningful Christmas gift for her, something that was for her alone, and something that she could enjoy. This muff served the two-fold purpose of giving her something to do with her hands, but it also kept her hands warm. Great product. (Posted on 5/3/2016)
