Active Minds Aquapaint Dementia Activity


When you’re caring for a loved one with dementia, you may sometimes find that you need a way to keep them occupied to reduce boredom…

Boredom can bring about challenging behaviour, which is understandably difficult for you both to deal with.

Creative activities, such as painting, can help to improve their health and wellbeing by encouraging them to express themselves in meaningful ways.

Aquapaint™ is a range of painting sheets that have been specially designed for people living with dementia.

Allowing your loved one to create a beautiful, vibrant piece of artwork using nothing but water – providing a level of satisfaction and entertainment, which can often be difficult to achieve for those living with dementia.

They simply brush water onto the sheet, and an image will gradually be revealed. Best of all, once the water has dried, the sheet fades to white and is ready to ‘paint’ again.


Benefits of water painting for dementia for your loved one:

  • Helps them to maintain their independence
  • Helps to maintain their skills
  • Allows them to express their feelings and communicate
  • Improves their self-esteem
  • Gives you and your loved one a chance to bond

Aquapaint is brilliant

This is the first meaningful and independent activity I have seen my Dad do since his dementia got worse. Enjoyable and calming as well as helping conversation. Kids love it too, so can become a group activity to really improve visits! Really worth a go!

Review by Petra

Great idea

These are brilliant, the colours and the pictures come out really well when you paint the water over them. They leave no mess at all because you are just using water. I found that if I put them onto some kitchen towel - any excess water got soaked up as my mum went along. The only problem I have is trying to convince her to just paint the canvas all over - she seems to want to try and keep within the lines, like she does when she is using a colouring book. I'm sure with time, she will begin to understand though.

I work in a long term care facility and these water paintings could not be a bigger hit with our residents. One of our friends is a successful artist, but dementia has robbed her of that talent. She loves creating these bright works of art.
