Which cognitive area is it related to?
Description of the exercise:
There is a cube (die) with a different object depicted on each side. The die (cube) is rolled and as it falls, a conversation begins about the object – where it can be bought, what it is used for, how much it costs. The person with the most accurate answer is the winner and rolls the cube again. It is good to make several dice, making the objects from different thematic areas, for instance 1. Kitchen utensils, 2. furniture, 3. food; 4. vegetables; 5. Clothes and so on.
This is a group game for 3 to 6 people. It is suitable for people in the early to moderate stage of dementia.
