I bought this Twiddle a couple of months ago for my 94 year old mother who has had slowly progressing dementia for the past 10 years. She has resided in a wonderful assisted living facility for over 2 years, but in addition to dementia, suffers from anxiety in that she often wants to "go home". This has led to occasional episodes where she cries, nervously wrings her hands, picks at her face, etc. Her family and staff have found her Twiddle to be a very effective comforting diversion that keeps her hands busy and helps calm her nervousness. Thank you for a great product!
Glad to a senior family member with dementia, immediately calmed and focused him and eased his agitation. Almost like a 'blankey' for the elderly - excellent product!
My mother suffers from dementia and often frets with her hands so the muff has helped to reduce her fidgeting. She also has poor circulation and the soft muff is a warm comfort for her chilled hands. She did not like the plastic ball buttoned inside the muff, but it was simple to remove. She does not presently "play" with the attached beads and ribbons, but she may reach a point where they keep her attention. It is so difficult to find useful and appealing gifts for dementia patients, but this muff turned out to be my mom's favorite Christmas gift.
Twiddles open the doors to imagination and social interaction for children of various ages and developmental levels, with multiple uses—from a cozy comfort ‘buddy’ to an engaging, interactive puppet.
In a sea of hard choices that are as unique as every child, a Twiddle is a safe, easy choice to add to the comfort toolbox.
