Fiddle & Twiddle
People with cognitive loss can find great comfort in something to play with and fiddle cushions, fiddle aprons and fiddle blankets for dementia patients are one of the most popular solutions. Dementia cushions and other sensory products for Dementia may help alleviate stress and restlessness in dementia patients, people with Alzheimer's disease and can also help others who suffer with a disease or disability.
Studies have shown that while restless hands may seem like a harmless symptom, they may be linked to other more serious symptoms such as wandering or dermatillomania (skin-Picking).
I lost my Grandma to Alzheimer's and it was horrible. But seeing her and how she was inspired me to start designing and making these products. She was always fiddling with things and it seemed to bring her so much comfort and relaxed her an auwful lot.
