About our product & how it works

Fidget Widget
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.

Turn Fidget Widget
Turn is one of 5 specially designed widgets, each with a particular motion. A smooth wooden design that fits comfortably in the hands, the Turn widget features a windmill-like top that provides a soothing and intuitive interaction with the hands. Invite someone with dementia to delight in the simple pleasure of turning in the hand or practising repetitive movements.

Product Features:

  • Dimensions: 19cm x 8cm x 6cm
  • Calming and relaxing
  • Designed to bring comfort to busy hands and unsettled minds
  • Relieves tension and restlessness
  • Enhances personal wellbeing
  • Intuitive: No right or wrong way to use it
  • Fidget toys for adults with dementia
  • Improve wellbeing for those who have difficulty with words or are experiencing fidgeting behaviour

Press Release from Alzheimer’s Society:
Fiona Carragher, Chief Policy and Research Officer at Alzheimer’s Society, says: “The Fidget Widget toolkit addresses an unmet need for people with fidgeting behaviours, a group which can be overlooked or labelled ‘difficult to manage’.

“Dementia is a devastating condition, and while our funded researchers are hard at work to find a cure, it’s great to see the brilliant ideas that we have helped make a reality, being employed to help people with dementia right now.”

Jane Souyave, Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), “In collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Society and Relish, the Fidget Widget Toolkit is the result of 8 years of research and development and provides an opportunity for those with advanced dementia to be engaged in meaningful activities that enhance personal wellbeing.

The results of our product testing, in people’s own homes, day centres and Lancashire County Council care homes, confirm that the toolkit supports psychological needs. Users feel occupied, engaged and included in a meaningful activity of their choice. Caregivers also reported there was an ongoing and lasting well-being effect.”
