Further Testing of Painting Book

Written by Active Minds on Wednesday the 15th of August 2012.


Over the past week Alice has continued the development of our new painting book designed for people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s, which now has a selection of 25 images.

Today was the second round of testing at Ashford House, where we hoped to see promising results from the new and improved designs. The residents enjoyed another great day, with the enhanced range of images ensuring there was something for everyone – regardless of the level of dementia.

A number of useful observations were made which will be incorporated into the image designs as we continue to improve them. The key here is getting the balance right between suitably adult images and an appropriate level of complexity for our audience.

Over the next seven days each image will be refined and an additional 15 designs will be added, before further testing of the final 40 images.

As ever we are keen to hear your ideas for images so please get in touch ahead of the production deadline, which is looming near!
