Description

Sensory stimulation has been shown to not only bring enjoyment but also to fight anxiety and depression while increasing social interaction. From a psychological view point, having the ability to have something that you own and control is very important, however if that item also gives you comfort and reduces feelings of anxiety, then it is a needed item.The fiddle muff has proven to give a sense of wellbeing and can help people to express themselves with the ability to personalise to tell people about them.The denim and cord fiddle muff is an attractive, tactile, multi-sensory comforter with additional benefits. The soft, warm fabric is irresistibly tactile and made all the more interesting with attractive colours and additional features that keep fingers exercised and relieve tension and restlessness.

Glenn Knight CEO Training 2 CARE and Creator of the Dementia Interpreters Course comments "If you are supporting a person with vascular dementia, you may have noticed that they constantly tell you they are cold.Indeed many will wrap up in warm clothes even in the hot summer months and will feel cold to touch.It has been widely recognised that a person with vascular dementia may be between a 1/2 degree and even a degree colder than a person without vascular dementia.In some cases their temperature difference will help doctors to interpret the type of dementia they have and direct them towards a diagnosis of vascular dementia.With colder core temperatures, the person may start to experience peripheral neuropathy and you will start to notice that they often rub their fingers together and this is where twiddle muffs can really help.Having the ability to fiddle with an internal ball, tassels and fabric will help them to relax and control the sensations of numbness or 'pins and needles' that they may experience in their fingers. Finally, having the ability to encase their hands in the inside of the fiddle muff will keep their extremities warm.I 100% recommend this item to help people with vascular dementia although I also recommend that the fiddle muff is checked regularly for lose beading etc to prevent accidents."
