Handyman Activity Box for Dementia

Finding an appropriate activity for someone with dementia, memory loss or physical limitations can be difficult... finding the right fidget activity for men can be even harder. The Handyman Activity Box is ideal for anyone who has an interest in carpentry, building or good old fashion tinkering!

Finding an activity that is familiar to a person with dementia can help make a real connection in a stimulating and useful way. Perfect for an older man who was handy around the house or who professionally built or engineered buildings and furniture. The Handyman Activity Box will be the perfect gift to help exercise the mind and keep hands strong and busy!

Our handmade, wooden toolbox will give the familiar feeling of working with wood and it is complete with doors, locks, latches, hasps, and knobs. Items can be hid inside the compartments making it a challenging adult game, or simply use it as an object to fiddle with in order to keep the senses engaged!

The Handyman's Box comes in two sizes and is an award-winning tinker toy for adults that will provide hours of entertainment.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Fenwick, ON Canada  
This seemed perfect for my dad (91) with vascular dementia, who was a master handyman and fixer-upper!  (But is now a taker-aparter!) The package arrived, great shipping time, very well packaged. The box is very nicely made and sturdy; very good quality. The one disappointment I had was that each door did not open to an individual cubby. There are only two main cubbies.  While he was at lunch, we left it in his room, with three surprises inside, and then watched him on his room cam! He was incredibly intrigued; opened and closed many of the doors before taking the surprises out (wrapped individually). And then some, he put back in!  And spun the box around, and opened other doors, maybe forgetting that he put things BACK.  (Hey, an actual benefit to forgetting!)  The latches and closures are right up his alley.  There is nothing else like this on the market that I have found. I'm hoping this continues to be a success, helping him tinker and engaging his mind.  4.8/5

I received the handyman activity box and it was broken. They were very understanding and quickly shipped me a new one.

Nothing harder then putting a parent in the nursing home.  With Alzheimer's.

My father with AD was an engineer and later into his disease was unfortunately always taking something apart (electric shavers, doorbell, door knobs, etc.)  When we moved him to assisted living memory care, he needed something to occupy his hands, and this worked very nicely.  We hid treats (cookies, popcorn, chocolate) inside the cubbies.  Dad recently passed away and now my 3 year old nephew plays with and loves it.
