Tool Shed Jigsaw Puzzle:

DIY in the shed
The humble shed. For generations, people have retired there to pot plants, repair lawnmowers, and keep busy working on a DIY project. The DIY movement became popular after WWII as home ownership was rising. Tradesmen were expensive and more people wanted to learn DIY because they now needed to do the work themselves.

How It Works
The thirteen-piece puzzle is the easiest in our range and suitable for people in their mid to late point of their dementia journey. Each puzzle consists of thirteen pieces that can be assembled within the frame and on a specially printed backing board that is designed to assist and encourage the individual to complete the puzzle themselves.

Tool Shed Creative Scene:

Building something new or mending something old gave people independence and valuable experience. The DIY movement increased in popularity after WWII as home ownership was rising, tradesmen were expensive, servants were gone and the housing stock decaying. Ordinary people wanted to learn DIY because they now needed to do the work themselves.

How It Works
After discovering that as people’s dementia progresses they struggle to pick puzzle pieces up and place them in the correct place, which caused frustration. We wanted to design a product with no wrong answer that gives that same sense of achievement.

Creative Scenes enables people to create their own tool shed using a set of magnetic pieces. Each magnetic tool can be picked up and placed in the background wherever they choose, creating their very own tool shed.

Each Creative Scene has beautifully illustrated content, commissioned to ensure they are reminiscent of the appropriate era so people can relate to them and start conversations. The plastic we use is very durable and easy to clean, meeting infection control standards.

Tool Shed Aquapaint:

Aquapaint™ products are a unique reusable painting activity that has been designed for people living with dementia. The Tool Shed Aquapaint™ set has been designed to stimulate memories of afternoons spent working away in the tool shed.

How It Works
Aquapaint product demonstration video

One of our best-selling activities, Aquapaint™ products have been designed for people in the mid to late point of their dementia journey.

Each set comes with five different images that have been carefully selected to help start a conversation when the painting is complete – simply paint water on to the sheets and watch the image appear.

As the water dries the image will fade ready to be used again.

Tool Shed Scentscapes:

The Tool Shed Scentscape® pack has been designed to stimulate memories of afternoons spent working away in the tool shed, making and mending things for the home. Combine the unmistakable scents of engine oil, sawdust and car polish with the sounds of effort and elbow grease to create a warm feeling of familiarity and engagement for any DIY enthusiast.

How It Works
Active Minds noticed that later into somebody’s journey with dementia, certain activities which may have been both important to a routine and comforting become less accessible.

Scentscapes® products were designed to offer somebody both sound and scents of various popular experiences. Our research showed these to be powerful tools to help transport people to a time or place, stimulating memories and conversation and helping to access memories that would otherwise have been difficult to reach.

Each Scentscape® pack comes with three scents, three smelling jars and a 20min CD with specific sounds of a particular theme. Each CD is split into 3 different sections which relate to the three different scents. A great product to use in a group or one to one.
