How we can help you

There isn’t always the time, space or energy to keep thinking of new activity ideas for people living with dementia. That’s where we come in! In each Bright Box: For Groups resource we’ve done the hard work for you and put together all the materials you need to deliver themed activity sessions, from workshop plans and step-by-step guides to physical resources. All activities can be adapted to accommodate people with early to late stage Dementia.

Themed Boxes

All our resources are inspired by Bright Shadow’s tried, tested and evaluated Zest workshop model, so you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.

Themes currently include:

  • Dance Hall
  • Desert Island
  • Great Outdoors
