The This is Me life story telling board game allows you to explore your life and others’ in a convivial and equitable setting. It offers exploration of, and reflection on, past experiences, current feelings as well as future wants and wishes with family and friends. The ‘This is Me’ boardgame is based on life-storytelling, reminiscence and mindfulness. It aims to help people refocus following the dementia diagnosis, to take a positive attitude and to manage their lives with confidence.
We have developed and evaluated the game with people with dementia in the UK, Germany, The Netherlands and Spain. Its evaluation has had promising results and we are working on making the game publicly available. Further information will be available soon.
