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.”
Calms my dad and keeps him busy
it’s not easy to find gifts for my dad these days- I bought one of these before and my father wore it out. It really helps calm his anxiety and engages him. HIs hands want to go all the time and the design is perfect for him. Yes, I wish it weren’t so expensive but I will buy another one if he wears this one out too.
Great piece especially for Advanced Dementia
Expensive, but worth it, and a well executed idea put together sturdily.
Our advanced Alzheimer’s patient did not like this product at all
My husband is very macho, so I hesitated getting him something like this. But I have tried different things to get his interest and have found nothing. I noticed he played with his bed sheets, so got the Twiddle Sport, thinking it might keep his hands busy. It amazingly does. I am so glad that I got it.
