Twiddles® are soft, therapeutic comfort and activity aids designed for people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia to increase their flexibility and mental stimulation for daily living activities. Twiddles can help and comfort those with diminished hand mobility, limited social interaction, or anyone soothed by repetitive tactile stimulation.
As loved ones age, it becomes increasingly important to live well in the moment — and in a way that maintains the essence of who they are. Twiddles help elders not only improve their quality of life, but also to relax and enjoy the well-earned memories of a life lived to the fullest.
That’s what the comfy, clever Twiddle collection is all about: keeping hands and minds active and engaged, or calmed and soothed. A Twiddle makes that special someone feel they are cared for — even when you can’t be with them.
Each Twiddle is made from a cozy, durable fabric. Tethered inside is a flexible, soft-plastic orbit ball. Twiddles are a reassuring addition to your caregiver resources, and provide a less-expensive, drug-free therapy option ideal for use in any setting.
Attached to the outside are three detachable gadgets:
- a sealed satin or buckskin crackle pouch
- a soothing strand of textured ribbons
- a playful loop of colorful wooden beads
- a Velcro® pull-tab for convenient attachment to a walker, wheelchair or bed tray
- a name tag
- safety-tested to meet U.S. & European standards
