What the Dementia Toolkit covers
The toolkit is designed around the researched evidence that visual prompts can be more helpful than words alone. It covers:
Life story work
Going through someone’s life story with them is a rewarding activity and can have huge benefits, especially in getting a better understanding of their emotions and engaging with them on a truly one-to-one basis.
Our Dementia Toolkit provides a useful format for collecting information about the different stages of a person’s life, suggesting ideas on the type of things you may want to include in life story work. You could collect photos, pictures from magazines and even objects. Maybe browsing through books, watching DVDs together or creating a collage will help.
Visual reminders around the home act as useful memory triggers for key activities throughout the day. We’ve created a simple planner for the main daily activities, together with blank cards so you can personalise some tasks with your own images.

Flashcards for rooms and visitors
It’s common for someone living with dementia to feel anxious about appointments or new people coming into the home. We’ve created a simple sheet to collate images of your circle of support, whether that’s family members, carers or a GP.
The clear flashcards also help to orientate a person with dementia by identifying rooms and potential hazards around the home.
