Mind Dice - what a brilliant idea

When I was speaking at the Aging2.0 conference I met a really nice guy call John Sprange.

Through his direct experience of caring for his father who had Alzheimer’s he came up with the idea of the Mind Dice.

As John's father's memory failed he was still able to recollect memories from long ago. Frequently he brought to mind events that placed him where he was happiest and at the height of his powers. 

John experimented with the dice, which carried, names of people, place and themes. 

The dice enabled him to engage with his father with ‘prompts’ that set him recounting his stories.

What a brilliant simple idea. I wish him the very best of luck with his business venture. Dick Stroud
