Bournemouth care home installs dementia care innovation

Muscliff Care Home in Bournemouth has installed the Tovertafel (‘Magic Table’ in Dutch) in its care home following an overwhelming reaction from residents. This award-winning innovation comes from the Netherlands, which is renowned for its cutting-edge approach to dementia care.

The Tovertafel contains a series of activities for people living with mid to late stage dementia. It has been designed to encourage instinctive participation, inviting engagement and stimulating a level of physical and social activity rarely seen in people living with dementia in the later stages of their journey.

Dedrey Charles, the Matron at Muscliff Care Home, said: “The Tovertafel has provided accessible games to the residents at different level in their dementia journey in a safe environment. We find the use of the magic table very stimulating through play.”
