Exceptional care activities for people living with dementia

Wouldn’t it be great if we could all have a little more laughter in our lives?

Especially those living with dementia who have struggled with the significant disruption that Covid-19 has caused.  Through the power of light, the Happiness Programme is changing the lives of people across the UK, through every day interactive play experiences that encourage participation, engagement and social experience.

The Happiness Programme is focused on supporting:

  • people living with dementia
  • their care team
  • their friends and family

Improving well-being

Both the magic table 360 – our interactive light projector – and our games are designed around common themes of physical and cognitive stimulation and social interaction. Our technology is built upon a growing body of research demonstrating the benefits of playing with interactive light to those living with dementia by providing physical, cognitive and social stimulation to those with care needs through games they’ll enjoy playing.

The Happiness Programme provides the structure, guidance and support to better enable care venues, their care staff and friends and family to maximise these benefits and delivery improved care outcomes which include: 

 

Reducing reliance on anti-psychotic drug use

Increasing weight gain

Reduced falls

Interactive lights is proven effective

Through providing an activity that’s accessible to all, we’re supporting friends and family who have loved ones in care. Through engaging, interactive and universal games, there are opportunities for stronger relationships and intergenerational play, creating cherished memories with young children and family members.

There are more than a dozen research studies which have linked interactive lights with three outcomes:

  • Sensory stimulation
  • Relaxation
  • Reminiscence
