Dementia activity combo
Our ever popular mindfulness for dementia activity, partnered up with Getting to know you at a special price. Two great dementia activities ready to use.

Getting to know you is an outdoor picture book which comprises of a collection of nature based images for you to look at and talk about together giving an insight into feelings about the outdoors, memories and any particular activities that are of interest. The pictures in the book have been chosen to represent a broad range of environments, experiences and activities. This dementia friendly book can be used as a reminiscence tool to talk about things such as picnics, bird watching, picking strawberries or growing flowers. It can also be used to talk about activities in people’s lives now.
