Twiddle Muff For Dementia

Caregivers often have difficulty finding activities for people with dementia, and many games for Alzheimer's patients become ineffective as the disease progresses into the late stages. It is common for these patients to have restless hands, particularly if they had been accustomed to performing manual activities, such as knitting, typing or playing a musical instrument prior to the onset of Alzheimer's.

Twiddle Muff The Twiddle®s Senior Activity Muffs provide an engaging, entertaining way to occupy the hands. Within each muff is a soft ball for squeezing and the outer is ideal tactile stimulation. Marble-sized beads are safely contained inside a sealed pouch, but busy hands can still manipulate them. Trims, such as buttons, ribbons and beads, offer additional engagement. Twiddle®s also helps keep the patient’s hands warm, making it perfect in outdoor activities for Alzheimer’s patients.

Three different designs are available, allowing caregivers to choose the perfect match for their patient. The Twiddle®Cat and the Twiddle®Dog each have a charming, embroidered face. The Twiddle®Sport is covered in a blue-green plaid design. With its innovative design, these Twiddle®s can provide hours of comforting, therapeutic entertainment. All Twiddle®s are machine washable and dryer-friendly. Just remember to remove all gadgets first!

twiddle-muff-sportTwiddle®Sport ~ For the sports-minded, the streamlined, distinctive Twiddle®Sport is the way to go. Kitted out in Black Watch plaid with faux suede accents, the Sport model features mental and physical activity winners: strands of textured ribbons, a loop of multi-colored wooden beads, a faux suede pocket and sealed pouch of marbles, a Velcro pull patch, and—best of all—an interior squeezy ball to work on. No sweat stains and sore muscles, just gratifying memories of the glory days.

twiddle-muff-catTwiddle®Cat ~ The purrfect Twiddle® for the feline fancier: a cuddly kitty without the claws! The exotic-eyed Twiddle®Cat features soft, cozy, fleecy fur in a cream shade, with rich satin embellishments. Hands and mind are kept active and engaged by the interior squeeze ball, a satin pocket and sealed bag of marbles, a loop of multi-colored wooden beads, streaming textured ribbons, and a Velcro pull patch.

twiddle-muff-dogTwiddle®Pup ~ Who can resist an eager-eyed, fluffy puppy? This floppy-eared, friendly-faced, flea-free Twiddle®Pup comes complete with its own squeeze ball tethered on the inside. Exterior attached gadgets include a loop of multi-colored wooden beads, textured ribbons, a faux suede pocket and sealed pouch of marbles, and a Velcro pull patch to exercise hands and mind alike. No walks or clean-up required for this best-in-show puppy pal.

Introducing the Twiddle® ~ Before you give a Twiddle® to someone, think about the approach to which he or she will be most receptive. Perhaps the gentleman who likes to fix things could be handed the Twiddle® for “evaluation.” The woman who is a nurturer might appreciate “looking after it for a while.” Does he or she like animals, or fear cats or dogs? As in all things, be thoughtful about the choice of Twiddle®, and its introduction.

  • Stop the “Pick Up” Game ~ Some individuals habitually toss onto the floor items they are given, then ask for help picking them up again. One advantage of the Twiddle® is that a belt can be inserted through the activity/comfort aid, then tied or loosely fastened behind the person’s waist. This keeps the Twiddle® up where it can be used and enjoyed, and not on the floor.
  • Change It Up ~ For the sake of variety, move the gadgets around on the Twiddle®. Put the beads inside, and affix the ball on the outside, for example. If someone tends to chew a particular attachment, don’t risk an accident. Unbutton and remove the potentially problematic gadget, without compromising the quality or usefulness of the Twiddle®. Once in a while, take off all attachments and run the Twiddle® through the washer and dryer to keep it clean and fresh.
  • Pocket Potpourri ~ The Twiddle’s® side pocket can hold a handy tissue, a family photo, a simple memento, or perhaps a sweet-smelling sachet. Customize the contents to the individual, and keep it fun and surprising.

Love it February 6, 2017
Reviewer: Charlotte Goshe from Butler, PA United States  
Got this for my dad who has advanced dementia and he has absolutely loved it. Keeps him occupied with his hands.

Puppy twiddle muff is soft and cute! August 23, 2016
Reviewer: Emily Anderson from CANTON, OH United States  
This is a well-made, very soft handwarmer for your parent.  My mom likes the cute puppy face and the way it feels. I like that there's a little ball inside. I told her she could exercise her hands by holding the ball and squeezing it.  All the attached items can be removed for laundering by unbuttoning them,  and it has a velcro aided fabric buckle to attach it to the wheelchair so it doesn't get dropped and lost.

Mostly wonderful August 15, 2016
Reviewer: A S DuBose from Six Mile, SC United States  
My husband has already pulled off one of the button and ribbon combinations but I will reinforce the thread with a small piece of cloth of both sides when I sew it back on. Otherwise it has been a hit.

Reviewer: Katherine Burrell from Lexington, KY United States  
Our Mother loved it right from the start. Her hands are always cold and she loves to have it with her. She has started checking out the pieces on the sides. I think it's going to be an item worth having! Thank you.

Cuddly success! November 4, 2015
Reviewer: Lynne Jensen from Milwaukie, OR United States  
We bought two of these, and can see the need for more!!  We are going to give families the idea of purchasing one for their loved one, for the holidays...they are always wondering what they should get them for a gift.  The muffs create such a relaxed response to holding them...and it keeps the resident's hands warm and busy!!
