Posted By

Just as it is important for seniors to engage in regular physical activity in order to keep their bones and muscles (and their brains!) strong, so too should they engage in stimulating activities such as brain exercises to maintain their brain health.

Even if the individual is experiencing more severe memory loss, such as dementia, all of the following brain exercises, especially those that focus on things in the real world, can be effective.
