This Animal Audio Bingo is a fun, age appropriate game that is accessible for those at early and later stages of their dementia journey, helping to improve cognitive functions and social participation. By using authentic animal sounds and beautifully illustrated images instead of numbers, people in later stages of dementia are still able to take part in this popular game without becoming frustrated by numbers. Animal Bingo is a group activity for up to 8 players, and a bingo caller to run the session. The game is simple, the bingo caller plays the different sounds on shuffle whilst players put counters on the matching image. The caller will also have a flip book to show images of the animals alongside the sounds as an extra prompt. To win, a player needs to match 9 animal on their card and shout Bingo!
