The first question for us: How to develop knowledge in people that tend to forget what they have newly learnt after some time?Take our idea further! Contact us!
All of us were challenged to find the most appropriate way to channel knowledge and keep people with dementia engaged. After some research, we focus on the early stage of the disease and we found out that three topics are most important: nutrition activity, brain activity and physical activity. We divided ourselves into these topics and each group made a prototype of the best idea we had about it.
We found out that we need to exercise the brain to help it preserve as much as possible. We needed to be careful with the activities chosen because of our delicate target group. After deeper investigation, the best activities which are suitable for people with dementia are social games that keep them busy, socialized and at the same time, their brain is working in a fun and easy environment which does not need to be monitored by external people.
