Overview

Like the popular first volume, these 87 activities will stimulate the minds, memories, and senses of older adults. Designed especially for individuals concerned about early memory loss, the short, one-page worksheets strengthen brain functioning, promote social interaction, and provide hours of meaningful enjoyment. Developed by two adult day service professionals and field-tested with individuals with early memory loss, these activities feature trivia and reminiscence. Organized into three categories (People, Places, and Things), worksheets that feature fill-in-the-blank, matching, and brainstorming allow older adults to challenge their memory and gain new knowledge on a wide variety of topics including favorite music, popular expressions, famous movies, historical leaders, prominent U.S. and world landmarks, celebrated athletes, and more. This book can be used independently by older adults concerned about memory loss or by activity staff and group leaders for discussion and programming ideas. Tips for engagement and an answer key are included for each activity. Use this innovative book to provide older adults with leisure activities, learning experiences, and valuable brain exercise all at once!
