€10,198 for the Magic Table for RCNU


The Magic Table (or ‘Tovertafel’ in Dutch) is an award-winning innovation from the Netherlands that projects a series of colourful and fun, interactive light games onto the surface of a table. This specially designed technology supports physical and mental stimulation in people with mid-to-late stage dementia and also adults with learning disabilities. The moving images stimulate physical and cognitive activity as well as encouraging social interaction, relaxation and engagement.

€10,198 was provided to Richmond Community Nursing Unit - part of the Beaumont Hospital Campus at St Joseph's Hospital in Raheny - to purchase this hugely popular equipment for the residents of the home, many of whom are battling dementia.
