Colouring in for grown-ups (with cognitive impairment)
We developed this colouring book with Fresh Arts at NHS NBT. The brief was to provide a simple, age appropriate activity for adults with dementia and other cognitive impairments.
We developed a few trial pages to test response from patients and medical professionals – which informed the design of this simple colouring book. The themes and images are clear, easy to use and appropriate for older people.
The book gives the opportunity for reminiscence and engagement through a calm, uncomplicated activity.
