Launch of new products to help families coping with dementia
The Future Perfect CompanyMay 16, 2012 10:09 BST
One of the biggest challenges facing people affected by dementia is maintaining meaningful communication with their families and carers. The Future Perfect Company which specialises in well designed products for older people has launched two new products designed to help.
With around 750,000 people in the UK having dementia – a number which is set to double in the next thirty years – more and more of us are being affected by this heartbreaking condition.
Pictures to Share and Mind Dice offer a way for the person with dementia to interact with their families and carers in a meaningful and enjoyable way. They can be used by families at home and also in care homes and are versatile and attractive tools to help families make the most of their time together.
Pictures to Share are beautiful, non stigmatising illustrated books for people with dementia and their carers to share together. Many family members find the Pictures to Share books prove to be a great help in prompting a range of different conversations. They can also provide those with dementia living at home or in care with an enjoyable way to pass the time and an effective way of interacting with different carers and family members.
Mind Dice also aims to help people with dementia communicate. Prompts written on a 12 sided dice, enable people to tap into their remaining memories provoking stories and responses which can be enjoyed by family, carers and friends.
Says founder of The Future Perfect Company, Philippa Aldrich : “We are delighted to be adding these two innovative new products to our caregiving range. So often these sorts of products can only be bought on niche websites and we think that it is important for them to be accessible to everyone, particularly given that more and more of us are finding ourselves in a caregiving role. Also, so many of the new breakthrough products in this area are based on technology. Mind Dice and Pictures to Share are simple, non threatening and non stigmatizing products which are designed for all to use and which focus on meaningful relationships”.
Mind Dice and Pictures to Share are the latest products to be added to The Future Perfect Company’s caregiving range which also includes popular reminiscence cards, Many Happy Returns 1940s and handmade double handled teapots.
