Active Minds Audio Bingo is a fun, age appropriate game that is accessible for those at early and later stages of their dementia journey, helping to improve cognitive functions, social participation and to bring families together.
We designed this game after observing that as people’s dementia progresses they find it harder and harder to play traditional bingo. We wanted to design a game where people in early and later stages of dementia can play together.
For many individuals with dementia, recognition of numbers can be challenging. By using authentic animal sounds and beautifully illustrated images instead of numbers, people in later stages of dementia are still able to take part in this popular game.
How It Works
Animal Bingo is a group activity for up to 8 players, and a bingo caller to run the session. The game is simple, the bingo caller plays the different sounds on shuffle whilst players put counters on the matching image. The caller will also have a flip book to show images of the animals alongside the sounds as an extra prompt. To win, a player needs to match 9 animals on their card and shout Bingo!
A number of our daily living aids products are eligible for VAT relief for people who are living with dementia, carers or people considered chronically sick or disabled. To help identify these products we have clearly labelled them on our website and catalogues.
What products are eligible for VAT relief?

The HMRC states that "equipment that has been designed solely for people with a disability, chronic or terminal illness or on the adaptation of equipment so they can use it can be VAT exempt".
If you are unsure if a product is eligible for VAT relief please call our team on 03001240900 (freephone).
Please note Postage is not VAT exempt, and the VAT Relief will be removed from the individual items.
Who is eligible?

When purchasing a product that qualifies for VAT exemption you will be asked to tick a box declaring that you or the person you are purchasing the item for are eligible for VAT relief. You will then be asked to give full name and the medical condition of the person who qualifies for VAT relief. Once this is completed you will be charged the VAT relief price.
