What are the best games to play with seniors living with dementia?

  • Leaves

    A firm favorite, this game activates players to swipe the swirling leaves off the table and enjoy the rustling sounds. Great for individuals and groups as an activity, it gives seniors living with dementia the feeling of being outside and keeps their attention.

  • Sheet Music

    This game allows elderly people living with dementia to be active without even noticing it. When players touch a music note, a familiar tune is played. And it can’t go wrong, as there are no false notes. The players can enjoy listening to the music and make music themselves.

    A nostalgic nod to amusement park experiences, this game encourages players to push moles back in their holes as fast as possible. Stimulating seniors living with dementia to move their arms faster and further as the moles appear.

    Social distancing may have reduced the number of people using the Tovertafel at the same time, but it hasn’t reduced the opportunity to share laughter and joy... It’s awesome.
