"Acute Hospitals demand easy to use and effective resources that can be dispersed across the hospital environment and do not have high demands for space, time or money.  Once purchased, The Sparkle can be used across the hospital site and therefore the cost can be shared also."

"The Daily Sparkle can be used with individual patients on a 1:1 basis with clinical staff, relatives or friends, or in a group setting as the focus for a reminiscence or activity group. The social interaction promotes well being."

Becky Lambert, Dementia Lead, NHS Royal Free Hospital
