Tovertafel – Helping Hand


Once you have seen the Tovertafel in action, you will never forget it. 

2020 is a year that changed our lives in ways we could never have imagined.  From ‘windows of love’ to video-conference calls, we have all learned new ways and new technologies to help us stay in touch and connected, with people living in residential care.

Based on scientific research, Tovertafel is an interactive ‘projector’ that uses light, colour and music to stimulate, physical, social, and cognitive activity.

You don’t need to understand the technology to engage with it – it’s completely intuitive and can be shared with families and friends of all ages – even children.

At Helping Hand, we have seen how Tovertafel connects with people living with dementia and the best way to understand it is to see it.

Watch the Tovertafel in action and learn more about this inspiring campaign.

Helping Hand first learned about Tovertafel in 2019, when the Auxiliary group at Ingle Farm raised $15,000 to purchase a Tovertafel for their residents. The response and the joy it brings people has inspired Helping Hand to embark on its own fundraising campaign to purchase a Tovertafel at eight residential care homes.

To make this happen we need to raise $120,000. Every donation will bring us a step closer to bringing the magic of Tovertafel to our residents. All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

Latest update: with the support of the Belalie Lodge auxiliary, we have raised enough to purchase a Tovertafel for our home in Jamestown. Thank you for your generous support and the joy you are bringing our residents. Only seven more homes to go!
