Put Your Mind to the Test
It is no secret that doing crossword puzzles or brain teasers help keep our brains active and healthy, and medical research has actually shown that when people keep their brains active their thinking skills are less likely to decline.
Luckily, we are living in a time where people of all ages are becoming more tech savvy, downloading and using applications on a tablet or a smart device. Among the millions of applications that can be helpful for caregivers (for organization, emergency information, sharing tasks etc etc) there are many great brain fitness apps as well.
“Lumosity” and “CogniFit” are among the thousands of brain stimulating apps that are geared towards improving cognitive abilities with puzzles focusing on memory, attention and problem solving.
This is a fun way for your loved one, and yourself, to break a mental sweat every day!
