A care home in the Norfolk broads village of Hickling has raised £6,500 to buy an interactive table for dementia patients to enjoy.

The interactive table at Hickling House projects numerous images and games onto a table where it stimulates residents to join in and take part in numerous activities.

Margaret Preston, part of the activities team, said: “We try a person-centred approach when we do any of our activities and the interactive table goes a long way to providing stimulation and interest for all of the residents no matter what stage of dementia they’re at.
