6 activities to improve memory

“Memory is the diary that we all carry about with us”, Oscar Wilde once wrote. Memory is the storage of information and personal experiences. It gives us the capability to learn and adapt. Thanks to memory, we are who we are.

Unfortunately, there are diseases like Alzheimer´s, in which memory  fades away gradually. This memory loss, however, can be faced. At NeuronUP, we support cognitive stimulation to improve memory.

In the following, we introduce 6 activities to improve memory in adults and children:

6 activities to improve memory

1. Telling Time

Checking the time is one of the most common daily tasks. We usually look at the clock several times each day. A priori, this seems to be an easy task, though it can be difficult for people with mild dementia. They can have trouble telling time when there are different units of time (hour, minutes, etc.). Therefore, this exercise is perfect for the therapist to practice with patients suffering from any type of dementia. It mainly focuses on semantic memory and writing skills.

2. Matching Words to Category

This activity is aimed at training semantic memory. Patients must try to match words to the category to which they belong. For example, “maroon” goes with “colors”, sofa” with “furniture” and “Libya” with “countries”. To which one would you match the word “freezer”?

5. Find the Fish

There are also exercises to improve memory in children. “Find the fish” is a children’s game that consists of accurately remembering the places where the fish appear.

In addition, NeuronUP allows the therapist to choose for each patient the amount of time for memorization, the number of allowable errors, the size of the fish or or whether or nor there are guide lines.
