About This Creative Scene
Building something new or mending something old gave people
independence and valuable experience. The DIY movement increased in
popularity after WWII as home ownership was rising, tradesmen were
expensive, servants were gone and the housing stock decaying. Ordinary
people wanted to learn DIY because they now needed to do the work
- Arrange the magnetic pieces to create your own scenes
- A lovely way to reminisce over times from the past
- No right or wrong way to enjoy the activity
How It Works
After discovering that as people’s dementia progresses they struggle
to pick puzzle pieces up and place them in the correct place, which
caused frustration. We wanted to design a product with no wrong answer
that gives that same sense of achievement.
Creative Scenes enables people to create their own tool shed using a
set of magnetic pieces. Each magnetic tool can be picked up and placed
on the background wherever they choose, creating their very own tool
Each Creative Scene has beautifully illustrated content, commissioned
to ensure they are reminiscent of the appropriate era so people can
relate to them and start conversations. The plastic we use is very
durable and easy to clean, meeting infection control standards.
Magnetic Picture Boards have been designed to delight people with mid-late stage dementia. Retro illustrated pieces are specially designed to elicit fond memories, create scenes worthy of conversation or can stimulate conversations on their own. There is no right or wrong way to engage with this activity.
Bold colours aid visibility and large, easy-to-handle pieces and can be placed onto the high quality picture board with powerful magnets. An ideal activity for those who struggle to complete puzzles, this activity provides the same sense of accomplishment.
Conversation prompts are included with the board. This activity does not only inspire happy memories, but it can reignite interest in old skills, or spark interest in new and related activities.
