Brain Teasers Proven to Help with Senior Mental Health

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there are ways to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia and lower the chances of developing it as well. Despite there being no known care yet, medical studies have made a lot of advances that could eventually lead up to finding one. One piece of important evidence that has been discovered is that regular mental stimulation can potentially lower the risk of seniors to develop such mental degenerative diseases.

What constitutes as mental stimulation? Anything that encourages thinking beyond the basic scope of intuitive or instinctive thoughts. So this could include puzzles and riddle solving games. A simple and fun game like Sudoku or solving a crossword puzzle would encourage thinking and problem solving. Basically it would give the brain some exercise, and any form of exercise, mental or physical, is a good thing. Just try this one on for size. How many horses are there in the picture?
