  • Word games and quizzes often require you to remember things you already know. This can strengthen your memory, which is very helpful for people in the early stages of dementia.
  • Participating in these games and activities can make people feel good about themselves, which can make them happier and less anxious or restless.
  • Lots of word games and quizzes can be played with others, making them an excellent social activity, something that's really important for feeling good emotionally. The split word games are a great example of an activity that is fun one-on-one.

It's crucial to remember that every individual with dementia is different.

What proves effective for one may not necessarily work for another. It's essential to identify activities that the person finds enjoyable and can actively engage in. Stress that it's not a competition; it's just for fun.
