Communication and Conversation Aids for Care Homes

Starting and having conversations can be challenging for both care staff and residents. Especially for people who are new to the home and for those suffering with dementia. This range of conversation aids has been chosen for their simplicity and ease if use.

You can use the cards as simple prompts in one-on-one situations, or you can use some of the products to host a more open free flowing group conversation for instance by setting the general topic of conversation. You could also leave the items out in communal areas for people to use as and when they want.

For those who find it difficult to communicate their needs, our Communication Board is ideal to allow them to point to their choice. For meal choices, every care home needs a Menu Board to help residents choose their dish of choice. For a fun way to get everyone talking, why not play a game of cards - The Art of Conversation game has great ways to get people discussing and debating.
