Food glorious food! Let’s close our eyes and let our noses, tongues and hands lead the way, as we explore a number of edible things. This sensory game covers smell, touch and taste, which all help to trigger memories.
It is important to remember that some people with dementia struggle to swallow or have lost their sense of smell. If so, simply make adjustments. For example, only use soft foods if they find hard foods difficult and focus on touch if they’ve lost their sense of smell.
It’s great to play with just one person, or in a group.
