Elderly patients need Brain Exercise and mind stimulating activities to stimulate memories, emotions and socializing.

Successful activities must capture attention, motivate participation, stimulate conversation and build confidence.

Capturing Attention is crucial to keep your loved one participating in activities. Images that are fun and familiar capture elderly patients attention.

Motivation is stimulated with interest and the feeling you can do the task.

Completing a task, no matter the size is success. No matter the size, it takes concentration.

Repetition helps increase concentration.

Played routinely memory exercise cards/memory match games can help improve memory and concentration; stimulate problem-solving skills and hand-eye coordination.

I can help YOU give your loved one “a fun moment in time”.

Playing cards was a favorite pastime or hobby of many elderly making interaction easy. Putting together yesterday’s hobby with fun, familiar and family oriented images of Rockwell and Weber reminds me of a Oreo Cookie. They love it!

While testing my first puzzles with residents, in 2008, I met a wonderful lady.

• Florence, 90,  was a whiz with the memory puzzles and cards. She was quite amazing, helped the others, who were much younger and was very detail oriented.

She noticed the date on one of the puzzles, pointing out, saying it was her fathers birthday and the date stimulated many memories.

• While testing MatchMate cards, (1st card game) a concentration game and matching game, I realized playing the game with elderly, seniors with dementia and stroke patients I needed a different approach.

• Frustration set in too easily and quickly when played like go fish, a concentration game.

• When we played this way, the memory exercise game was not fun anymore… for anyone.

• As you know, when some people become frustrated they do not want to play anymore and this is what was happening.
