Dementia: Participating in word games and quizzes can offer numerous advantages for individuals suffering from dementia.

  • These activities help keep the brain active, which helps to keep thinking skills sharp.
  • Word games and quizzes often need you to remember things you already know. This can help make memory stronger, which is very helpful for people in the early stages of dementia.
  • Taking part 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.
  • Many quizzes have multiple-choice answers, which can help trigger recollection. If you are doing the quiz with another person, depending on ability, you may need to offer two answer options instead of three to simplify.

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.
