The Slide Fidget Widget is one of 5 specially designed fidget tools, each with a particular motion. A smooth wooden design that fits comfortably in the hands, invite someone with dementia to delight in the soothing pleasure of sliding beads up and down along a secure rope.
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.
The Fidget Widget engages touch, feel, and repetitive movements to calm and engage with busy hands and unsettled minds. As there is no right or wrong way to use the Fidget Widget, users can use their creativity to explore and interact with the tool.
