The Lions Club of Busselton has enhanced the lives of Capecare residents living with cognitive and/or mobility impairment thanks to a significant donation.
The Club purchased and donated to Capecare Busselton residents a Tovertafel, designed to promote more joyful, social connections for seniors living with dementia through its wide range of interactive games.
The augmented reality gaming system uses light animation to help with cognitive challenges.
The games are designed to engage seniors in a purposeful play experience, increasing activity, connections, fun and learning opportunities, whilst creating memorable moments.
The Lions Club of Busselton has had a long and fruitful relationship with Capecare. President Ray Neil said making a meaningful contribution to the community is what being a part of the Lions is all about.
“This is a project that has been some time in the making,” Ray said.
A number of Lions Club members were on hand at Capecare for the state-of-the-art games console’s official handover and unveiling.
They were rewarded with huge smiles and laughter from the first residents to participate in the interactive activities.
Capecare Acting CEO, Philippa Ayre said the donation will have a positive impact on residents.
“An enormous thank you to the Busselton Lions. We are extremely grateful for their continued support in enabling us to continue to improve the lives of our residents,” she said.
“We love working with community organisations with shared values to identify opportunities for fundraising, donations and sponsorship.”
