Last year my Grandma sadly passed away, she ended her days living in a care home having been diagnosed with dementia. At the end she was constantly confused and frequently disturbed.
It was emotionally hard to visit her as she had no idea who anyone was anymore and it was hard to understand how her world had changed so dramatically.
This afternoon I have been contacted by BUPA who would like a “game” they have made publicised that allows users to experience a tiny fraction of the feeling of confusion that dementia can bring.
“The aim of our game is to match cards to their pairs in the allotted time, however as time goes on, the cards start to move and become gradually more blurred making it increasingly difficult to complete. The idea is that users will feel frustrated and confused, reflecting how people with dementia often feel. You can play the game here http://www.thememorychallenge.co.uk.”
