We are looking at investing in an interactive digital table. Do any of your have then in your care settings and are they worth the investment?

Hi Peta
I have never had a table like this but I’m sure it would be a great addition to your facility
Are you able to have a trial. To see if it works the way you wanted to and engages they residents

We use a 'magic table'. I give some of the residents who have more advanced dementia a half hour at the table, give them a 'prop' such as a soft fluffy cloth and it really increases the amount of physical activity that they get as I put on a program such as sweeping away autumn leaves or trying to wipe the fish off the table. It acts well as a distraction too if they are a bit 'irritable'.

Wow Jean
Thank you for this information
Where did you get the magic table??

Hi Susan, Our H/O ordered one for each of the homes in the group, 7 I think, I didn't even have to ask for it.
