Match the Shapes

The colorful shapes on the black tiles naturally draw people’s attention. They are fun to look at and handle, and provide the basis for a variety of fun and challenging matching activities and games for people with dementia or Alzheimer's.

The tiles come pre-sorted into four bags with a corresponding template in each bag. Start with one bag of pieces and a quarter page template. Successful? Add another bag and the matching template and carry on with new colors and shapes. Too easy? Move to the next level. Too challenging? Move back a level.

My Mum loved matching the colours and shapes but unfortunately she thought they were sweets and began putting them in her mouth and she wasn't allowed use it again. It might be better if the shapes were bigger than they actually are. (Posted on 7/25/2018)

Awesome game because it required two thought processesReview by Kayle
Person enjoyed activity
Easy to use
Would recommend
Awesome game because it required two thought processes, color and shape. It is simple to use and you can make it easier or harder depending how the person is understanding the game. I only wish the shapes like the square and diamond were not used because it is hard for him to tell the difference. Also there are two star like shapes which make it a little confusing which type of star to get next. In a way it just makes him think a little more so it works.

Accommodates Varying Levels of AbilityReview by GG

One would assume that matching shapes to a template is a simple task. Not so, for dementia patients. I was startled at how challenging this sort of task can be. The great thing about this activity packet is that it can be modified according to each person's cognitive ability, thereby assuring some level of success. (Posted on 2/16/2018)
