Les Ives Illustrations

My name is Les Ives and I am a designer/illustrator from North Yorkshire. In 2013, my family was made aware of dementia when my elderly Aunt began to show symptons of the condition.  As well as first hand experience, I met up with friends of whom one was an activities co-ordinator at a local care home.  She explained that there was little available for her residents to interact and enjoy, regarding activity reminiscence products.  What was avaiable was often at an unaffordable level or her activity budget.  

 

Having started work on some initial ideas, I approached the Alzheimer's Society in London who kindly agreed to see me.  They liked what I was doing and offered invaluable guidance and advice in the early stages of my product development.    After good response from care home trials, I launched the Decades range of products in early 2014.  My product range now extends to fifteen lines with two new colouring sets and a "changing of the seasons"  themed jigsaw range, all available  now.  

 

I currently supply in the region of 500 care homes and day centres throughout the U.K. and Ireland and now am supplying Spectrum members who receive a special reduction in pricing.
