Magic tables to support people with dementia

An innovative Dutch invention that provides stimulating light games for people with dementia is now available at four libraries in the borough.

The Tovertafel ('magic table' in English), projects animations onto table surfaces and allows users to interact with the light by moving their arms and hands.

The games are designed to provide physical, mental and social stimulation for people in the mid to later stages of dementia but can also be used by children and people with learning disabilities, autism and early-stage dementia.

The magic tables have been installed in Uxbridge, Botwell, Ruislip Manor and Northwood Hills libraries and are available for groups and residents supporting someone living with dementia to use for free on a regular basis. There is a Friday session at Uxbridge Library at 11am for anyone who would like to try out the table.

To book to use a table, contact one of the libraries directly.
