27 November 2023

Dementia-friendly game launched at Worthington Lake

3 minute read

A company that creates resources for families affected by dementia have partnered with Worthington Lake Care Home, giving residents first dibs on a brand-new dementia-friendly game.

A Good Day, based in the North West, believes that through meaningful conversation and shared activities, we can improve our mental and physical health.

A Good Day’s new game, Matching Memories, kickstarts conversations with easy-to-read prompts and clear illustrations.

Dementia-friendly, players can enjoy the flexible game in pairs or with larger groups while its relaxed nature means players are not bogged down by rules and regulations.

"We’re so humbled to have been able to come and sit with the residents, seeing first-hand the positive impact of the game. There were lots of smiles, laughter and stories shared between the group.

"Millennium Care is a very special group of homes and all the residents and staff are like one big family. We choose to work with them to develop our products as it’s important to have those shared values.

“As a family-run business ourselves, we can see the heart as the centre of everything they do. We believe this is how great things are created when residents, families and caregivers are included and lived experience is listened to."

Emily Tyler, Founder of A Good Day

“It was great for us and our House Guests to have a go at A Good Day’s Matching Memories. It’s fun, but ultimately, it’s an amazing reminiscence tool which supports staff and residents by providing quick prompts to learn more about each other.

“The partnerships we have across the Millennium Care Group and our home, Worthington Lake, provide amazing opportunities for our residents which we’re so thankful for.”

Alisha Bromley, Activity Co-Ordinator & Wellness Lead at Worthington Lake Care Home
