Over the years we’ve written about several fidgets that may benefit individuals with ADHD, autism, and anxiety. But we haven’t written about fidgets that may benefit individuals with Alzheimer’s or dementia, like the Wooden Fidget Widgets.
According to the Alzheimer’s Store:
“The Fidget Widget has been designed in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Society and the University of Central Lancashire, to improve the well-being of people in the later stages of Dementia, by supporting their psychological needs to feel occupied, engaged, and included in a meaningful activity of their choice.”
There are five Fidget Widgets in the kit. They engage touch, feel, and repetitive movements to “calm and engage busy hands.” There is no right or wrong way to use the fidgets, so users can discover their own ways to interact with the tools.
