Shadowbox Press Conversation Cards for Men were developed by an Activity Director to encourage individuals experiencing memory loss to reminisce and converse about a particular aspect or experience from their lives.
The Words for Guys deck contains 52 two-sided 6 x 9 inch cards.
The front of each card features a vivid, full-color photograph - isolated on a white background to eliminate confusion while allowing the user to focus entirely on the image - and the corresponding name of the item printed in bold, large-print text.
The back of each card features nine questions - a combination of (4) closed-ended, (2) open-ended, (1) either/or, and (2) Did you know trivia questions. The questions are opinion-based - purposely created to have no right or wrong answer.
An ideal activity for Caregivers, Family Members, and Activity Directors.
