Call to Mind – Board game for people with dementia

Laura Templeton designed a board game for individuals with dementia.  It was developed after over 20 years of research and testing.  Call to Mind is a simple game that helps get to know and understand the thinking, likes, and dislikes of someone with dementia.

In addition to getting to know someone with dementia, the game also stimulates memories and encourages conversations.  The game can be played at home with friends and family or in the professional setting of a care home, daycare center, hospital, etc.  

Here’s more from the Alzheimer’s Store:

“People sometimes struggle to find things to discuss with people with Dementia. Call to Mind selects topics of conversation randomly, so there’s always something to stimulate conversation. This can make spending time together more interesting and enables people to discover new things about each other…”
