Helping Seniors with Dementia Using Puzzles and Games
A new program in Utah is helping seniors who suffer from dementia. The organizers are training volunteers to work with the elderly using puzzles and games along with other personalized activities to help patients socialize and feel connected to those around them. The program has not only helped the patients but has given much needed respite for caregivers, which are often family members. This is a great program which helps address the growing population of aging adults and the strain it can often pose for family members. You can read more about this program in the Wall Street Journal.
