Caring Homes has installed its first Tovertafel (‘Magic Table’) at its Mellish House care home in Sudbury, Suffolk.

The award winning innovation from the Netherlands provides a number of fun activities designed to engage people living with mid to late stage dementia.

Glenda Davison, Activity Co-Ordinator at Mellish House Care Home, which is rated Outstanding by the CQC (see Caring Homes celebrates first Outstanding), said: “When I read about the Tovertafel, I was blown away with the possibilities it held for our residents.
