“And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out into the world it is best to hold hands and stick together.” — Robert Fulghum, author

Just because seniors have already reached their golden years, that does not mean they should also stop having fun. Every senior, whether they have an illness, disability, difficulty with mobility, or problem with old age, is advised to play brain games. No worries! It does not require them to move around like teenagers do. It does not matter whether they are lying in bed or sitting in their comfy chair, they can still play games.

Playing brain games is not just about having fun or avoiding boredom. When seniors play, they are required to think. That means they are using their minds, which is a big factor in boosting their ability to remember and think rationally. Apart from boosting their mental health, games can also help seniors learn something new, take an ongoing challenge, enhance existing or new skill, and it’s also rewarding.
