This large sensory rummage pouch provides a stimulating activity for seniors living with dementia.
The wipe clean pouch has a clear window to reveal small items inside. When the pouch is squished by hand it moves the items around so that they emerge from within the polystyrene beads. The various items have been chosen to be of interest to women. It includes things like a thimble and pegs to prompt memories of adult pastimes as well as a knitted toy and a miniature rocking horse to bring back childhood memories. Each pouch contains at least 10 items.
When explored with a caregiver the objects in the pouch can be used to prompt conversation and help maintain those all-important bonds.
Measures approx. 20cm x 25cm.
