PIN-UPS MEMO GAME
Plays like the classic "memory" or "concentration" game and has images of classic pin-ups dating back to the roaring '20s.
Pin-Ups Memo Game has 18 pairs of pictures on 36 cards. The object of the game is to find the matching pairs.
This is one of those activities that can be enjoyed at several cognitive levels: as a memory game for people with early memory loss, and as a matching activity or even a conversation starter for people in later stages.
On a higher cognitive level, the images depicted in this game can be used to initiate and inspire reminiscence.
Viewing and discussing them can be an effective therapy for people who have Alzheimer's. Creativity seems to withstand the ravages of the disease better than most other cognitive functions.
Memories also come out. And conversations. At the same time, some of the undesirable behavior, the anxiety and agitation, and the aggression don't come out. Not for a while anyway, and that's a nice reprieve for everyone.
