Review of Armchair Gallery

By Chris Connell, who has early onset dementia

“I absolutely adore using my iPad. I have dementia and it helps link things together. Armchair Gallery is easy to use and very intuitive. There are some lovely activities such as painting at Chatsworth House and sculpting at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.”

Free service, available for everyone.
