The beauty of the Throw And Tell Ball is in its simplicity. Catch the ball, and answer one of the questions by your thumbs. The questions on this mobility aid have been carefully chosen, so that anyone will have an answer that relates to them personally, whether it's their favourite biscuit, or something they did as a child.

These questions work like a key, unlocking memories that lead to more detailed and interesting discussions. And this will inevitably involve sharing great memories and reminiscence about things the participants value, and enjoy.

The throw and tell ball enables people to express meaningful, personal preferences in a no-pressure situation. A side effect of this mobility aid is that it promotes physical movement and hand-eye coordination.

If you're not already convinced, take a look at this feedback:

“The ball has generated a lot of laughter. We even used it at a conference to explore the group. When using the ball we learned one lady loved to watch Coronation Street and her favourite biscuit was a chocolate digestive. Including this information in a person’s care plan is invaluable.”

Geraldine Rodgers, Nurse Consultant North East London NHS Foundation Trust

“We introduced the ball onto the residential and nursing units and they have gone down well with staff and residents. Not all residents can read the question so we help when needed, but this has sparked some good conversations. The size of the ball makes it easy to catch so everyone can join in.”

Sue Goodrich, Activity Coordinator Prince George Duke of Kent Court
