Event Overview

Tovertafel “The Magic Table”: Talk and Demo’

5:30pm – 7pm, Friday 20 April: The Eagle Lab, Jersey Library

The Tovertafel (‘Magic Table’ in Dutch) is an award-winning innovation from the Netherlands, which is renowned for its cutting-edge approach to dementia care. The Tovertafel is the product of six years of research, designed to stimulate people living with mid-to-late stage dementia socially, cognitively and physically. The games are light simulations of familiar activities such as gardening, fishing and popping balloons to trigger a sense of reminiscence among players, encouraging both individual and group play. The Tovertafel games are projected onto a table to create a safe, fun gaming environment for all participants and create daily moments of happiness for all that play.

We are pleased to welcome John Ramsay, CEO and Founder of Shift8* – the company which brought the Tovertafel to the UK, to the Eagle Lab, Jersey Library, to talk about the development of Tovertafel and demonstrate this innovative technology.
