Lovely tactile 'feely' game that is simple to play for all ages. Twelve easy grip wooden pieces. Played just like a game of 'pairs' but this time you try to find two triangles that both weight the same. Makes a good game for older people who have limited hand dexterity and can also be used more simply for people with early-mid stage dementia.
Highly tactile game to appeal to all the senses. Place pieces face down and select two, then shake each and see if the sounds match. If not place back and let another player try. If you are correct then turn them over to display the image. Ideal to improve listening skills for younger and older players.
Team effort gets results with this Ball and Gutter game. Flexible beech wood rods form a channel into which the ball rolls, if everyone coordinates with each other, the ball can roll endlessly from one to another. Great fun for older care home residents and helps with communication and social bonding. 10 wooden lengths of varying lengths and 4 wooden balls - how many can you keep going at one time? Can be played seated or standing.
Cogs and Gears is a stimulating and tactile activity which has proven to be a real success with people with dementia due to the stunning visual effect.

Highly contrasting brightly coloured pieces make this good for anyone with a sight impairment too. 49 cogs and gears with interlocking base plates.
