Professional caregivers rave about the effectiveness of Twiddle®Muffs. 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 Muff 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.”
Money well spent
If I could have only one thing for mom, to keep her occupied and happy, it would be this muff.
This is the second one we have purchased. The first was the dog and she has worn that one out. She absolutely loves these.
I purchased this for my mother-in-law who was in late stages of Alzheimers and she absolutely loved it. She had many cats in her life and felt comforted by having this on her lap. She also liked to pull on the attachments and sometimes put her hands in the muff. It gave her a sense of comfort. I highly recommend this product…
My mom loves this cat and the feeling of holding onto it. She used to own cats back when she was well and now this makes up for her not being able to take care of a real one. She even named it after one of her former real cats. It’ s a great product.

She loved it!
I gave my mother this adorable cream colored cat. She has always loved cats and was thrilled when I gave it to her. Obviously because of her short memory, 5 minutes later she didn’t remember that I was the one who had given it to her, so she happily showed it to me and told me that she had bought it at Marshall Field’s store and that everyone (at her assisted living facility) wanted one after they saw hers. She felt so special that she was the only one who had one. You just have to chuckle.
