HEROES
Simply listening!
Dementia patients live in their own world. Social contacts as well as conversations have to be encouraged. Dementia patients like to talk and need listeners! HEROES appeals to the good deed in our society. HEROES is the right equipment for an easy start into this new world of dementia. It consists of 2 beakers, one cookie jar and a water bottle, which contains water for at least 30 minutes of conversation. Little codes of conduct, hidden in the beaker, suggest a sense of security while talking to the patient. The cookies, furnished with symbols, provide further topics of conversation.
