A game to learn how to communicate with a loved one suffering from Alzheimer's.

In Dutch “op de koffie” means getting together at someone’s home and chatting together with a cup of coffee. As a designer I like to help others. Connecting people and starting a conversation is an important goal for me. From my own experience I know that communication with an Alzheimer’s patient is often difficult and can lead to a lot of frustration.

During my project I developed a game in which you learn how to communicate better with your loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s through various assignments. Those assignments consist of various exercises that will help you to communicate better with Alzheimer’s patients. If you do that exercise properly, you can “sip” your coffee by removing a slice (of coffee) from your cup. The player who has finished his cup first is the winner and has been successfully “op de koffie”.
