During November, we filmed our first Tovertafel video in the UK at Littlebourne House Residential Home near Canterbury in Kent. Littlebourne was also our first installation in the South East of England. The residents particularly enjoyed sweeping up the leaves during autumn.
“I think it’s lovely to see everyone around the table together interacting,” the activities coordinator, Kate Cooper, said. “The staff know how to use the Tovertafel. It’s very easy. It’s just wonderful. It really is.” Kate loved how it had become a part of Littlebourne’s day and saw the positive effects of the Tovertafel. When residents played with the Tovertafel in the morning, they were more alert for other activities during the afternoon.
We were lucky to be joined by a family member, Kay Barrett, who agreed with Kate: “The nicest thing about it is that the residents are all sitting around the table and everybody can have a go at it”. No matter who you are or where you come from, anyone can play with the Tovertafel.
