Sensory, cognitive and motor stimulation can enhance the wellbeing of people with dementia and their caregivers by reducing their susceptibility to developing behavioural or psychological symptoms. This project led to the development of a multi-sensorial game (MatchLink) for use by occupational therapists and caregivers to engage and stimulate people with dementia, with the intention to increase functional ability and prevent decline. Primary information was collected through an ethnographic observation at Ng Teng Fong Hospital with the guidance of an occupational therapist.
