Frequently Asked Questions

 

+ What is Gleam in Your Eye?

Gleam in Your Eye propose activities and games adapted for people with moderate dementia. As, like everyone, they deserve a positive environment and interactions in their day-to-day lives. That’s why all the games and activities are designed to keep them entertained and stimulated.

+ Who can benefit from Gleam in Your Eye?

Gleam in Your Eye can benefit people with moderate-stage dementia as well as their loved ones. The games can be played alone, so they’re a great way to give some respite to the caregiver.

The box includes games focusing on sensory stimulation thanks to logical thinking, language, art and movement. All games have been designed with the input of health professionals to ensure the difficulty levels are appropriate for people with moderate‑stage dementia.

We provide all the materials and instructions in a clear and concise format. Each game can be played alone or with another person, and tips are proposed to ensure success and self-confidence.

 

+ What comes in the activity book "Spark your mind"?

50+ cognitive activities to entertain and stimulate senior living with a cognitive impairment like Alzheimer’s. It is about filling in missing numbers or letters, matching pictures, finding differences, coloring, writing missing words, doing adapted crosswords… All activities have been tested and developed with healthcare professionals.

+ Can I pause my Gleam in Your Eye subscription ?

At this time, we do not offer an option to skip a month or pause your subscription. But if you have a special need, contact us at info@gleaminyoureye.com, and we will be happy to help.

 

+ Can I cancel my Gleam in Your Eye subscription ?

If you choose a three-month plan, you commit to a subscription for that number of months with an automatic cancellation at the end of this period. We will notify you in advance to propose to renew your subscription.

 

+ Can I order Gleam in Your Eye boxes as a gift ?

For sure! They make the perfect gift for a loved one with dementia. If you are ordering a subscription, select “Yes” under “Is this a gift?,” and we’ll add a kind message to the welcome letter of your loved one’s box. This will let the person know who this wonderful gift is from!

 

+ Are there boxes designed for adults who don’t have dementia ?

At this time, we work with health specialists to develop products for people with moderate-stage dementia. That said, each game offers several levels of difficulty, so they may be suited to other cognitive impairments. 

 

+ Are instructional videos provided ?

We are still working hard on providing instructional videos every month. These will include step‑by‑step directions to help you get the most out of our products, ensure the activities are a success, and above all, have fun!

 

+ Can I just buy a box without the monthly subscription ?

Yes you can just order one box or a book of activities. Enjoy it and if needed, you can subscribe a plan to receive adapted games each month thanks to our 3-month plan to go on sharing joyful moments with your loved one. We recommend around 20 minutes of daily stimulation, and every day, your loved one will have different needs because of his mood, desires, or abilities. So the subscription plan is a good and economical option to be sure to have the right game at the right time.

At this time, our subscription boxes only ship to the United States—but we are working hard on making them available internationally.
