Professional caregivers rave about the effectiveness of Twiddles®. It has long been known that having something to hold and manipulate, something to “twiddle” or figgit with, can have a calming effect on people who suffer from dementia. The textures, the gadgets, the warm coziness of the Twiddles® are all there for just that. The focus and the stimulation they provide truly adds to the quality of life of the individual.
The Twiddle® gadgets are detachable allowing the Twiddle to be machine cleaned. Muffs have been put through many machine washing cycles, and still look and feel and work like new!
According to Corie Larocque, Alzheimer’s coordinator for Brighton Gardens in Wheaton, IL, “(The Twiddle®Muffs) immediately help calm the resident, directing their focus and energy on one thing. In my experience, the muff does reduce the need for meds.”
