Bring your competitive spirit for a friendly game of Category Snap. Choose from three variations with different difficulty levels - Snap, Pairs, or Full House. Designed for people with early to mid-stage dementia, the illustrated cards feature easily recognisable images in bold contrasting colours, so that players can enjoy a lively game with friends and family with little to no assistance.

Category snap is a variation on traditional snap, in that no two cards are the same. The idea is to match cards from the same family; a saw and drill match as they are both tools. However, there is no wrong way to play and players can use their imagination to make their own association games.

This product was inspired to support cognitive stimulation therapy which prompts people with dementia and Alzheimer's to think creatively, and has proven to have positive effects on cognition and quality of life.
