Welcome to Keeping Busy

Twiddle Pup

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 Twiddle Pup has a head with floppy ears and a sweet face as well as a short tail. Great for anyone who loves dogs.

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.

This is perfect for the Alzheimer's or Dementia patient who has the need to feel things and have tactile stimulation. It has several items to keep fingers busy and they also feel different. It was a great purchase for my father who has advanced alzheimers. (Posted on 1/25/2017)

This product was purchased to use in a day program for our aging client's with IDD. One of the client's took to the product with great success for varying methods of response: calmming, tactile, and stimulation. One reccomendation is to ensure the stitches on the ribbons etc.. are more secure as our client had them removed the first day. Otherwise I would reccomend and I am planning on purchasing another.

My husband is late stage alzheimer's and is unable to be out of bed. I wasn't sure if he would respond to this Twiddle Pup but he really seems to love it. This has been a great way to give him something to do with his hands when he is agitated. Great product and very well made. (Posted on 12/7/2016)

This was bought for the senior resident facility I volunteer for. Great fun and stimulation for them, especially the dementia patients! One sweet old gal has refused to give it back to the activities director, it's hers now! (Posted on 11/21/2016)

Purchased this for my mother who has moderate dementia. She loves dogs, her hands get cold and she often fidgets with her hands. The doodads attached to the muff provide something to fiddle with. As an added treat, after shower when working to get her warmed back up and getting her hair dry, I warm the muff with a hair dryer. She always says "Aaaaaah." I'm ambivalent about the rubber ball on the inside of the muff. Mom keeps trying to remove it and it kind of confuses her that she can't. Update: the rubber ball can be unbuttoned and removed.
