Key Features

  • Beautifully designed Mid to Late stage activity
  • Suitable for those with reduced dexterity
  • Encourages conversation

Reminiscence is a wonderful way of encouraging conversation when caring for someone with dementia. While they may not remember things in the present, their memories from long ago may be as sharp as a tack! Playing games and doing activities that help to bring these memories back to life may renew the individual’s sense of self-identity and self-worth, making them feel happy and fulfilled.

Building something new or mending something old gave people independence and valuable experience. The DIY movement increased in popularity after WWII as home ownership was rising, tradesmen were expensive, servants were gone and the housing stock decaying. Ordinary people wanted to learn DIY because they now needed to do the work themselves.

The idea was born after discovering that as people’s dementia progresses they struggle to pick up puzzle pieces and place them in the correct place, causing frustration. The aim was to design a product with no wrong answer that gives that same sense of achievement. Activity Scene – The Tool Shed, enables people to create their own tool shed using a set of magnetic pieces. Each magnetic tool can be picked up and placed on the background wherever they choose, creating their very own tool shed.

Each Activity Scene has beautifully illustrated content, commissioned to ensure they are reminiscent of the appropriate era so people can relate to them and start conversations. The plastic used is very durable and easy to clean, meeting infection control standards.

Contains 26 magnetic pieces

Size: 29cm x 40cm.
