Playscope's range of Treasure Baskets, multi-sensory resources and Activity Cards are also proving popular in Centres for Adults with Learning Difficulties and as part of activity programmes for Care Homes for the elderly. Indeed most Occupational Therapists, Play Therapists and Activity Coordinators have to resort to using children's activities with adults and elderly residents although the packaging and presentation may not be age-appropriate. The beauty of our Treasure Baskets and range of accessories and Mats is that they are age-appropriate whatever your age as they are not perceived as toys by adults. As well as providing much-needed sensory stimulation, physical manipulation and when used with the Activity Cards, fun multi-sensory games for engaging the brain, many of the objects in the Treasure Basket are timeless classics or involve using traditional crafts, which encourage reminiscences and discussion.
A Care Centre trial has been underway to monitor the application and benefits of using this type of sensory-rich resource with older people. The findings are extremely positive with practitioners using the Playscope Treasure Basket and Activity Cards in a variety of ways to respond to individuals' needs. A selection of suitable Playscope resources is suggested below. If you would like to be involved in further trials or would like to talk about particular resource requirements, please contact us.
