Games for Alzheimer's
A study reported in the American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementia found that playing Bingo specifically provides mental stimulation that is highly therapeutic. People with Alzheimer's disease who participated in the study performed significantly better on measures of cognition. Staff members reported increases in alertness and in awareness in the test subjects for hours after testing.
We offer a wide variety of games that rely on subjects and graphics that are age-appropriate for adults with memory and cognitive disorders. We have also concentrated on finding games that inspire reminiscing and socializing, like the "Shake Loose..." games below. Other games like Bingo and Dominoes are familiar and easy to play.
Choose a game that works on several levels. All games are cognitively stimulating to one degree or another. Without that aspect it would hardly be a game. Games can also offer a whole range of sensory stimulation, reminiscence, and socialization, all important "therapies" for a person with dementia.
