Handling vinyl

Looking for some suggestions for handling vinyl.

So I have something called "Essential Tremors". It is causing involuntary shaking in my hands which causes safely handling my records difficult sometimes. Please do not suggest streaming, I do that, but my majority of listening is vinyl and I want to keep it that way. I cannot simply balance a record on my fingertips without the likely hood of dropping it.

I have purchased a set of these and it works fairly well, but I worry about scuffing (https://www.hudsonhifi.com/products/hudson-hi-fi-three-pack-record-mitt-anti-static-record-cleaner-handler-record-player-accessories-with-soft-microfiber-material-for-safe-easy-lp-handling-and-avoiding-dirty-fingers). I have not noticed any scuffing, but I still worry :)

I have thought about gloves, however I would rather not deal with them each time I flip the record.

One last thing. To date medication has been ineffective.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
