GREENHILL ENJOY THE MAGIC TABLE

09 March 2017

The ‘Magic Table’ game is a new activity recently introduced at Greenhill. Developed in the Netherlands, Tovertafel or the so-called Magic Table is an interactive game for people living with dementia. By moving their hands over the table, residents can throw a beach ball to each other, sweep away autumn leaves or catch fish. “It is great to see our residents being more active and focused, and their imagination brought to life”, commented Nneka Amamize, Activities Carer. 

“A family of one of our residents kindly made a donation to the Magic Table and we are very grateful”, Jacqueline Howard-Perdrix, Home Manager, told us. “This new activity makes a difference to the everyday lives of our residents. They interact with each other as well as with staff much more. My aim is to make sure they can use the table any time they like and for that purpose all the care staff will be fully trained on how to use it.”
