Mindful Gifts DarlastonDecember 19 2019
Mindful Gifts CIC was born from the desire to provide a solution to buying suitable gift ideas for people with dementia and enabling people with dementia to take part in meaningful activities.
Our 1950s themed shop is in Darlaston, Walsall and is well worth a visit if you are in the area. The unique shop contains a traditional toy shop, grocery stores and sweet shop selling lots of favourites from bygone years. You can buy carbolic soap and be amazed at how the smell will bring back a memory or you could buy a spud gun from the toy shop. There is also a living room and scullery where you can enjoy tea and coffee from our best china cups and teapots. As well as enjoying a cuppa, you can be taken back in time with the nostalgic surroundings! There is a Flea Market in the back of the shop where you will be able to grab yourself a bargain!
As well as the shop, Mindful Gifts CIC specialises in gift ideas and activities for people with dementia. We have a designated area in the shop where all of our adult appropriate activities can be found. These include large piece jigsaws, adult colouring books, Aquapaints, therapeutic aids such as the TwiddleMuff and reminiscence aids. All of the activities are suitable for care homes, hospitals and day centres, as well as making great gift ideas for people with dementia.
