5 Memory games for seniors

1. Greater than and less than

“Greater than and less than” is the first game for improving memory in seniors. This activity involves writing the smaller and larger numbers immediately preceding and succeeding the reference number; this brain game is ideal for training semantic memory in older adults.

As in the other memory exercises for seniors developed by NeuronUP, neurorehabilitation professionals can select the level of difficulty that is most appropriate for the client’s capabilities. Listed below are a couple of worksheets (basic and advanced levels) belonging to this game for improving memory in older adults.
