Ilona commented on WHAT MATTERS - Conversation Game

Hi Minoo,
thank you for your comment. Please feel free to use any of the statements for conversation with your loved ones. This idea was developed for people with the early stage of dementia, and perhaps, both the cards and the statements would need to be slightly adapted for the patients with advanced dementia.
I believe there also are on the market cards to ease the communication with the patients, for example cards with pictures of food or activities. Our cards are designed not so much to communicate in a everyday context, but rather to have a meaningful conversation about the things that matter to us, as individuals, care-givers or people with dementia, in order to strength the understanding of the other person's values and therefore strength the bond between them. I hope you find our cards useful.
