The Game Therapy System kits are the perfect answer for engaging people with varying levels of cognitive and physical abilities in activities that will help them develop and retain important skills. From simple sorting to challenging fine motor activities, these kits capture the attention and interest of the user. They are easy to use, easy to clean, and easy to afford. Perhaps the most attractive aspect of this system is that it avoids the “one size fits all” mentality. The kits allow options so that one kit may be used for many activities with a single user or for different activities with several users.
After placing the Letter Tablet and Numbers Tablet in front of her, I now have something else for her to do which she has not done consistently in almost 14 years: writing. She took right to it. The letters and numbers are large enough that she can see them and the board small enough that it fits on the table right in front of her. She now likes to write her letters and numbers on the dry erase boards/tablets.
The Game Therapy System makes it easy for her to use. I can’t wait to get the rest of the kit and have my mother try the Peg Solitaire, the large peg board, and other parts of the system, especially the board with the strap to hold down a crossword puzzle book. In my years of experience of dealing with my mother, it has taken this long for me to say that I have found an absolutely fantastic system; one that an incapacitated elderly woman loves to use.
It makes my life easier and her’s more fun and rewarding. I can only imagine the improvement in my mother’s recovery and what she would be able to do today if she had access to this system for the last 14 years.
I feel it will help a lot of people young or old, sick or well have a better quality of life. On behalf of Activity Directors, we thank you for never giving up and sharing this great system you made for your dad.
I would love to go with you sometime to show the product and to share with others just how this has already changed a lot of people’s lives.
One strategy for improving our visits with people who have dementia is by using more visual cues and props to engage them in activities they’ve always enjoyed. In fact, I often tell family caregivers, “Don’t come empty-handed to your visit.”
The Activity boards offer a variety of functional activities that people with dementia and their caregivers can engage in together. When the visual cues of the familiar activity are combined with attention to the environmental set up and “go with the flow” communication of the caregiver, activities can be fun for all!
With the Game Therapy system, we can engage people with dementia in meaningful activities, create positive emotional connections, and help them maintain functional motor skills that would otherwise be lost early in the disease.
