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. Trims, such as buttons, ribbons and beads, offer additional engagement while a small bag filled with crinkle-paper offers a soft and soothing sound. 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 with crinkle material inside, 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 minds are kept active and engaged by the interior squeeze ball, a satin pocket of crinkle material, a loop of multi-colored wooden beads, streaming textured ribbons, and a Velcro pull patch. Available in two colors!

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 of crinkle material, 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.

Twiddle Dog August 16, 2019
Reviewer: Sue Pack from Salem, OR United States  
The product is just as advertised.  It appears the Twiddle Dog is made to last and made with good materials.  Very soft and it should help my clients.

Was a hit! March 21, 2019
Reviewer: Mary Murphy from Louisville, KY United States  
I bought the Twiddle cat for my father's 93 birthday. He has Stage 5 Alzheimer's and was totally fascinated with it and could hardly put it down long enough to eat his birthday cake!  It was a little pricey in my opinion but so worth it after I saw how he enjoyed caressing and fiddling with all the gadgets.
