Seasonal art, photo cards and inspirational resources
What are the ingredients that make for spending quality time with a person living with dementia, or indeed anyone?
Ingredients Cards are designed to help spark everyday creativity and encourage quality time with people living with dementia. The cards can be used by friends and family, as well as health and social care practitioners. The cards can be used as an individual reflection tool, or conversation starters in groups. Each card explores a different aspect of what contributes to spending quality time together.
The cards spell out the word INGREDIENTS but they can be used in any order. While these cards have been developed for people living with dementia, the ideas and suggestions can be used by anyone.
So much wisdom in a small pack of cards! Each card resonates so much with what we’ve learned along the way… It is hard work when you walk partially blindfolded, as most people in our situation, but this little pack can shed some light on how to keep going with the flow. (Rachel, wife and carer for David, living with dementia)
The Ingredients Cards were developed by Story Chaplain in collaboration with Sarah Edmonds. All proceeds from sales through the PLOT shop will go towards running DIG (Dementia Inclusive Gardening) sessions at PLOT 22.
