Memory Games for Alzheimer’s & Dementia Patients
A key aspect to our Alzheimer’s and dementia programs are memory games. Games stimulate healthy brain function by helping residents with Alzheimer’s and dementia exercise crucial brain skills such as memory, concentration, problem-solving, processing speed, language and visual-spatial recognition. These memory games offered by our dementia and Alzheimer’s programs to patients are proven methods of maintaining and enhancing brain health by:
- Improving “working” memory and stimulating the brain on a daily basis
- Strengthening the ability to pay attention to the right things — the things that will help your loved one solve the task at hand — while learning to ignore things that don’t help
- Enhancing skills and capabilities relating to problem solving, memory, attention, and agility
- Incorporating concentration and repetition techniques that spur memory and creativity
