After 6 months of research and testing Active Minds are launching their latest activity product, a painting book for people with dementia. Each book has a selection of 40 clear, simple illustrations that have been developed and tested with Barchester Healthcare.
With just a brush and some paint all users can enjoy the satisfaction of creating these beautiful images, without assistance, again and again. Easily photocopied for group sessions, Paint Project is an effective and reusable tool for anyone wanting to provide engaging and meaningful activities for people living with dementia.
During final testing early this month the product proved a big hit with residents and carers alike. The images engaged the residence and helped stimulate memories and interesting conversations. Paint Project is now on sale for £12.50 and already proving a big hit in the run up to Christmas.
Sheena Wyllie, Director of Dementia Services at Barchester care homes, said: ‘We are wholly committed to improving and enhancing lives of people living with a dementia. It’s creative and quality products like these that can add to an individual’s day-to-day enjoyment.’
