I used the card set with end-stage dementia residents in a large group setting. The activity ended up being like a group game of Scrabble. I had each person choose a card -"Pick a card, any card" - like a magic trick, and I kept an eye on making sure there were enough vowels. I placed these on a whiteboard shelf and then we found as many words as possible from the chosen cards, which I wrote on the whiteboard. I found that it worked really well and the residents really engaged with it. Some weren't quite up to the task but were very happy to sit and listen, laugh, even throw in words which weren't relevant. When lunchtime was announced the "Duchess" commented that "we were just starting to have fun". Which I found very reassuring. I think sight-words are still within their long-term memory ready to be plucked and given an airing.

Great tool!
These are nice quality cards, with a great variety of different letters. They provide good stimulation for Mom who has dementia. Sometimes she can create her own words, other times we create words and have her "fill in the blank" missing letters, depending on her level of comprehension that day. It's pretty easy to get creative once you get going. This card set provides lots of flexibility for activities of varying degrees of difficulty...great for good and bad dementia days!

My mom used to love to read and play Wheel of Fortune. These cards kept her attention and we played spelling and reading games. My brother and I are able to keep her engaged for nearly a half hour when we play, which is a blessing for us.
