Playing Games With My Mom
Brain Games for Seniors - Playing Cards for Stimulation
When I recently went to a psycho-neurological examination with my Mom I was shocked at how much her memory had declined - especially her math skills. She used to excel at math related activities.
We suggested that we play a bit of Rummy. At first she really had a hard time adding up the card points.
But now she's getting better and can almost always add up her own cards if we help her remember how many points they each have. She's even getting better at that. She's even won twice in the last week. We've been playing for a couple months and she's never won before - in fact, hasn't gotten much in the way of points.
I get frustrated with how slow she is and that she can't pay good attention to what's on the table already, so I've made an appointment with a counselor so I can learn some coping skills.
Are there any other card games out there that are not complicated that can help stimulate her brain?
