Twiddle Muff Chocolate Cat
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 Muff Chocolate Cat ‘s 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.”
My mom is not only suffering Dementia but she’s blind. The Twiddle Cat has become her friend; a friend that’s with her all the time, a friend that keeps her hands warm and so much more…
It is working great for my mother.
It works great for my mother. It keeps her hands warm (which are always cold) and give her sometime to do with her hands when she is sitting or experiences periods of anxiety. She also had a cat so it offers some memory of loving cats. I would recommend to others. We can use all the help we can get to keep our loved ones occupied and happy!
I bought this for my mum who has Alzheimers. She absolutely loves it and spends hours with it on her lap playing with the different parts of the twiddle cat. It arrived quickly and is well made. I would definitely recommend this product.
I agee with other review. Very high quality. Lots of beads, ribbons to occupy attention.
Twiddle Cat brings joy to father
My 93 year old father (who has Alzheimer’s) loves everything about Twiddle Cat, including its youthful appearance and diverse range of interesting manipulatives. When dad is sitting in his chair for long hours, Twiddle Cat keeps him good company. Dad loves finding the ball inside Twiddle’s tummy, and the ribbons and ‘clacker’ sounds are good for occupying his attention. I wonder if the device could be improved with some auditory features, like a reverberating purrrr sound or meow. I also wish it came equipped with a velcro fastener for attaching to his wheelchair. I would recommend this product.
