Anything that keeps the minds active is good.

If you are looking for fun, simple brain exercises the Memory Jogging Puzzles and Memory Cards with Norman Rockwell and The Saturday Evening Post are great.

They stimulate the recollection and emotional memory and encourage the person to use their problem solving skills.

They are fun to work with and the patients feel a sense of accomplishment upon completion.

Puzzles have few, large pieces, wooden and cardboard.

Memory Exercise Cards are oversized 3.5x5" and are handled easily.
