Many caretakers, doctors, and nursing homes stress the importance of exercising mental health as well as physical health in seniors. A convenient and effortless resource to stimulate the brain is by using applications (apps) on electronic devices. There are several benefits to putting apps on your or your loved one’s devices, such as increased mood, self-esteem, improved memory, and cognitive health. We have compiled a list of the most popular and entertaining brain stimulating apps for seniors:
Luminosity tops the list of brain-stimulating apps. Neuroscientists specifically designed the app for older adults. The app has over 50 different games that help challenge the mind by increasing critical thinking and problem-solving techniques. The games within the app vary tremendously, thus keeping it from ever feeling dull.
Like Luminosity, Cognifit also contains several different games within the app, but you can compete with players from around the world. The app offers fun games to evaluate and train your memory.
Elevate was selected by Apple as “App of the Year.” Another brain training app designed to increase focus, speaking abilities, math skills, memory, and critical thinking. Users can set on a personalized training program that elevates over time depending on your increasing aptitude and skill level.
Each of these apps offer a variety of brain stimulating activities to keep seniors sharp.
