Welcome to Keeping Busy

Twiddle Sport

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.

With its tartan outside and buckskin accents, the Sport Twiddle may be more suitable for men.

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.

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.

Worthwhile to have for the individual who has fidgety fingers. This provides tactile satisfaction through a nice variety of different textures. Review by Mary Ann L.

It only took a day for my 78 year old husband with late stage Alzheimer's to accept the Twiddle Sport and start fingering the different attachments. He sees the ball inside the muff, but he has not as yet put his hand inside to pull it closer. He is confined to a wheelchair, and before the Twiddle Sport, he would hold and finger the straps to the Hoyer lift pad that is under him. It would be nice if there were a few more items attached, i.e., a 4-5 inch large plastic zipper that when opened would reveal something interesting to touch. (Posted on 8/14/2017)

My Dad took to it almost immediately. Mom told him it was to help keep his hands warm. He hasn't sat in his chair without it since it arrived. Thank you! (Posted on 5/15/2017)

This was bought for my hospital bed bound father. He seems to like it. And it helps prevent him from fidgeting with the bed sheets (Posted on 11/30/2016)
Works for my GrammyReview by Carlee

My grandmother was recently placed in a home due to her dementia, and it has been a difficult transition for her. She was having a really hard time sitting still and was always asking what she was supposed to be doing. She can no longer read or write, so those types of activities weren't an option. I'm a speech therapist and have worked with many patients with dementia. I have never used this product with patients, but I've seen similar items. I bought this in hopes that it would occupy her mind a bring her comfort. This product has been a life saver. Every time I visit, it's sitting in her lap, and she is quietly figiting with the different attachments and textures. It's extremely soft and warm, and very well constructed. The item has held up well over the last month of use. If you're at a loss for how to comfort a loved one, I'd give this a try. (Posted on 11/3/2016)

I have found this to be a wonderful gift for the wheelchair bound. It's comforting, while keeping hands warm. The product is very well made, soft, and engaging. Would highly recommend this model for grandfathers and sports fans.
