Fidget Toy for Elderly & Dementia Patients
Our brand-new Dementia sensory-toy has arrived. The Tactile Turn!
We noticed there is much more product variety for the earlier and mid-stages of dementia and knew more needed to be made available for people living in the later stages. Relish therefore designed and created a product that is not only suitable for the ability of the later stages, but that is also age appropriate in design.
The Tactile Turn toy helps keep hands busy, alleviating stress and anxiety, and is focused on doing rather than achieving.
As with all Relish products, they have tried and tested it with a network of caregivers, care homes, and people with Dementia, who all provided invaluable insights that fed into the creation process, and helped get to the final design!
