If your loved one suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, you know that one of their biggest frustrations is not being able to enjoy the things that they once loved to do. Playing games and keeping seniors active is one way to help them feel successful. Remember that this is all for fun; therefore, it does not matter if your loved plays the game right or wrong.

Bingo :

Bingo Bingo is a game enjoyed by everyone, especially seniors. This is an appropriate game for seniors that are not in the last stages of Alzheimer’s. Bingo is not only fun, but it is also beneficial for seniors at the cognitive level - distinguishing the colors and shapes.

Computer Based Games:

Picture Games:

Picture Games Picture games are a great way for seniors to reminisce. These are also the types of games that seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s can play to bring back pleasant memories of the “good times” they had before their memories began to fade. To play this game, you can print out various pictures via the internet; place the pictures on the table and take turns with everyone naming a picture for the other players to find. This will help stimulate conversations, and it can bring up old stories (memories).

Memory Card Games :
