Developed for people with dementia, this brand-new life-storytelling board game uses conversation as a way of exploring your life from childhood through the present and intro the future.
It invites you to think and talk about who you are, your experiences, feelings and values and what you have done and want to do, supporting those all-important feelings of identity, independence and sense of purpose, while building closer relationships.
This wonderful game was produced as a collaboration between the MinD project (led by academics from Manchester Metropolitan University, partnering with the University of Wolverhampton, the NHS and Alzheimer Europe) and Relish, in consultation and review with over 100 people with early to mid-stage dementia across the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain; a project designed to positively affect the wellbeing and confidence of those with dementia,
It's a cooperative game, where all players share their stories and explore their life with each other.
Designed and researched alongside people with dementia, this game features bright, contrasting colours, clear recognisable shapes, a large typeface and easy to hold cards for those with reduced dexterity.
How it works
Each player takes a turn by throwing the dice, moving the counter, and selecting a card, to read out and answer a question card about their life experiences. Divided into the decades of life, players answer questions that provide conversation starters about memories and the future, favourite activities, the people in their lives, personal skills, likes and values, dreams and wishes.
