Testing Memory Games
While testing MatchMate, my first memory exercise card game I discovered a way for dementia and stroke patients to experience success .
Secret: I had to throw out the rules and adjust the match game to the level of person playing.
Playing card game this way enabled dementia and stroke patients to experience success, and for me to see a smile.
They are used for cognitive therapy in-homes and care centers throughout USA and abroad.
