Conversation cards and marbling inks
Art materials
Run-through of activity

After some initial conversations, Bernice has agreed to conduct the marbling activity with her dementia patients for 2 separate sessions. I conducted a run-through of the gameplay with Bernice so she could understand and facilitate the activity on her own. 

Some pointers and considerations from our discussion: 

  • Tactility and sensory elements can help with boosting patients’ self-worth
  • Some patients might place stuff in their mouths (be careful of them consuming the ink)
  • Keep options limited (not too many as it might overwhelm them)
  • Readiness of patients to share (topics to avoid?)
  • Choosing the conversation cards to use (some topics might be too sensitive for some patients)
