Harmony Hill Village, located in South Dakota, is now offering cutting-edge resident engagement technology called the Tovertafel to its memory care residents. The Tovertafel, developed in the Netherlands, uses light projections onto a table to create an immersive and interactive experience for participants. It promotes connection between those living with dementia, care professionals, fellow residents, and family members. Research has shown that playing with the Tovertafel can break through restless and tense behavior and increase positive emotions in people living with dementia.
In addition to the Tovertafel, Harmony Hill Village has also received a donation of HUGs for its memory care neighborhood. HUGs are soft, weighted devices with a beating heart and music player, designed to reduce feelings of anxiety and agitation and enhance social interaction for those living with advanced dementia.
The Village of Harmony Hill is excited to introduce these groundbreaking technologies in partnership with Eugeria, the company that distributes the Tovertafel and HUG. The Village offers support to memory care residents and their families, providing assistance with daily tasks, housekeeping, dining, and access to a memory garden.
