Conversation Game - Call to Mind
Call To Mind… is a specially designed board game that helps get to know and understand the thinking, likes and dislikes of someone with dementia. This tool also stimulates memories and encourages conversations, both as the game is played and in everyday interactions. Play it at home with friends and family or in the professional setting of a care home, day care center, hospital or memory café. Great intergenerational activity!
People sometimes struggle to find things to talk about with people with dementia. Call to mind selects topics of conversation randomly, so there’s always something to stimulate conversation. This can make spending time together more interesting and enables people to discover new things about each other. “I never knew that!” is a frequently heard comment.
It can be particularly rewarding for those who care for both children and elderly parents. Because it is designed to be played by different generations, it’s an activity that all ages can enjoy and benefit from.
