Magic tables to support people with dementia

An innovative Dutch invention that provides stimulating light games for people with dementia.

What is it?

Tovertafel means 'magic table' in English and consists of interactive light games specifically designed to promote social interaction and engagement in people living with dementia. The Tovertafel projects animations onto table surfaces and allows users to interact with the light by moving their arms and hands.

Providing physical, mental and social stimulation, the games can also be used by children and people with learning disabilities, autism and early-stage dementia. They offer a meaningful and accessible activity to people living with dementia that they are able to share with their family and friends at their leisure. 
 

Tovertafel Sessions

Hillingdon Council have seven of these to use for free in libraries across Hillingdon. They are available to book individually, or in a group, and residents supporting someone living with dementia can use them for free on a regular basis. Alternatively you can join in on one of the drop in sessions - see times and details below. There is a Friday session at Uxbridge Library at 11am for anyone who would like to try it out.
