The Alzheimers Society Dementia Cafe invited me to play Call to mind… at one of their regular meetings in Barnet. I’ve done this at several dementia centres, but this time I was asked to involve everyone at once. Not something I had ever envisaged, but I do like a challenge!’

It worked amazingly well. Instead of up to four people sitting at a table, the group sat in a large circle with the game at the centre. I brought round the spinner to each person in turn and they all had one question card to respond to. I was pleasantly surprised at everyone’s participation and how many new things were learnt about people who thought they knew each other.

I look forward to many more visits and new ways people have of playing Call to mind…
