‘All About Us’ – The Life-Storytelling Game from Relish
A first of its kind, our brand-new life-storytelling board game uses conversation as a way of exploring life from childhood through the present and into the future. It invites you or your loved-one to think and talk about who you / they are, life experiences, feelings and values and what you / they have done and want to do, supporting those all-important feelings of identity, independence and sense of purpose, while building closer relationships.
The result of a research and design project to positively affect the wellbeing and confidence of those with Dementia, this wonderful game was produced as a collaboration between the MinD project (led by academics from Manchester Metropolitan University, partnering with the University of Wolverhampton, the NHS and Alzheimer Europe) and Relish, in consultation and review with over 100 people with early to mid-stage Dementia.
It’s a cooperative game, where all players share their stories and explore their life with each other. Play with friends, family, groups or anyone you choose to. ‘All About Us’ is a great memory care facility activity as it can be played in groups and has no set rules!
