We are trying to raise money to purchase and install a Tovertafel "Magic Table" for my Father and other Residents at Mellish House Dementia Care Home.
The Tovertafel is a little box that can be mounted on the ceiling, for instance, above the dining room table. Inside the box is a high-quality projector, infrared sensors, speaker, and processor that work together to project the games onto the table. Because the colourful objects respond to hand and arm movements, residents get to play with the light itself which reacts to their touch.
The positive benefits to the residents at all stages of dementia to have the opportunity to access the Tovertafel on a regular basis would be astounding just some of the benefits include;
• The Tovertafel stimulates physical activity so that residents move more
• Older people can play with the Tovertafel independently
• The Tovertafel lets people on the dementia journey break through apathy
• Everyone can take part at their own level
• Promotes valued interactions with other residents, relatives, informal carers and care staff
• The Tovertafel does not take up any space and is not in the way
• An extensive range of games, each of which has its own goals
This has been extensively scientifically researched to have the above effect on those using it with dementia.
