Many older men will have been used to working with their hands, be it for their work or for a hobby. Some will enjoy having the opportunity to handle tools and bang, twist, screw etc using the tactile actions that would have been familiar. This is especially useful for anyone living with a dementia as the actions can trigger dormant memories and help encourage conversation and sharing experiences with others in a similar situation.

Why not make a corner to resemble a shed interior? A wooden bench with a 'window' looking out onto a garden scene (take a look at our peel and stick murals) or ring us to talk about a bespoke mural to depict a shed wall with tools hanging?.

Our range of products are just the job to get the chaps involved and chatting together over a cuppa!
