We work every day to improve the Tovertafel. Together with the target group, we are looking at how we can provoke even more interaction to break through apathy and improve the quality of life. In this article, we share the latest game content for seniors with dementia and give tips on how to use the games even better in the group.
Do you have a nice tip or suggestion? If so, please share it with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Play on the Tovertafel with the Rijksmuseum collection, such as the Milkmaid by Johannes Vermeer. Twenty beautiful masterpieces from the Rijksmuseum collection replace the current images. We have also added background music for more peace and atmosphere at the table.
Tip: Who will be the first to guess the scene being painted?
We have replaced the current images with fifteen new images. These images from the 40s and 50s were carefully selected by care workers around the world.
Tip: Ask the residents what they remember about the nostalgic items on the puzzles.
New: Travel Puzzle
Travel Puzzle is one of the newest games on the Tovertafel. By popular demand, we have added captions. Now players at the table can not only guess, but also see which recognisable place it is.
Tip: Talk with the players about what they see in the image. That’s also fun if they don't know the place.
Flowers is one of our first games on the Tovertafel. We have now added an extra flower. A beautiful red rose appears on the table, so the table is even more filled and every player can experience the flowers.
Tip: Challenge the players to continue rubbing until the flowers are fully grown.
New: Bright Hands (only for Tovertafel 2)
Bright Hands is our newest addition to existing games. The Tovertafel is able to recognise hands, which causes special projections to appear around the hands of our players. Even when the players keep their hands still, they feel involved and this provokes interaction!
Why Bright Hands?
- Increases the involvement of the players.
- Encourages play.
- Adds an extra layer to the game that keeps it interesting to play for longer.
Experience Bright Hands in the following games:
- Butterflies: Flowers appear when you keep your hand still. If you wait, a butterfly will come and sit on your hand. Try it out yourself, it’s magical!
- Fish: Fish food appears when you keep your hand still. If you wait, fish will come and eat the fish food from your hand.
- Nostalgia puzzle, Travel Puzzle, Kites, Spinning Tops: Stars appear when you put your hand still.
