Play with a Tangle

tangle

I really can’t say it any better than the website where I stole this picture from, http://www.seriouspuzzles.com/stangle.asp. They state, “Technically, a Tangle is a series of 90-degree curves, connected and able to pivot at each joint. It has no beginning and no end–just continuous motion. Experientially, a Tangle is much more. The motion it creates is hypnotic. Adults and children of all ages can’t seem to put the toy down.” Of course, this soothing movement with no “right” or “wrong” way to bend it is perfect for people with moderate to severe memory loss. They can sit for long stretches moving and bending it when calm, or even help “work off” some steam if agitated. I like the one pictured above because the silver color feels more “adult” but someone you know might prefer one of the more brightly colored options.
