Brain Games & Activities
Mental exercise is extremely important for the health and well-being of elderly people. Just as the body needs physical exercise to keep fit, the brain needs mental exercise to stay active and alive.
Brain game exercises and activities help stimulate the brain, and provide long-lasting positive effects regarding reasoning skills, memory and processing speed.
In-Home Caregivers Help Keep Seniors Alert
Home Care Powered by AUAF caregivers can assist clients with activities that help to maintain and improve the cognitive skills. Activities include:
Playing Board Games
Everyone loves to play a good board game. Though they might be very entertaining, they also have major health benefits including relieving stress and combating memory loss and depression. Board games can enhance memory formation and help exercise cognitive skills. They can also be low stress and calming.
Working on Puzzles
Puzzles are fun and a great source of engagement and entertainment for seniors. They’ll have the opportunity to exercise fingers and minds, and feel a sense of accomplishment. Seniors who have declined cognitively can still have fun with puzzles and our caregivers are ready to help put the pieces together.
Painting and Scrapbooking
Creative activities are some of the most popular senior activity ideas, and what better way than painting and scrapbooking? Painting can allow seniors to tap into their hidden creativity skills and scrapbooking can allow them to walk back down memory lane. Both activities provide an opportunity to think outside of the box and get creative.
