The brain, just like any other part of our body, needs to be exercised to stay in top physical condition.  Many seniors, who once were beyond overloaded with remembering things on a daily basis, find that it not often is they exercising their memory muscle without a conscience effort.  Some flash cards are specifically designed with seniors in mind.  Seniors suffering from Dementia and Alzheimer’s, who are using these specialized flash cards, may have an increase in memory and brain function.

Similar is better for those with Alzheimer’s in San Jose

Seniors with Alzheimer’s in San Jose and other memory related disorders are finding that there is a place to call home with other seniors who are alike. Some senior communities which offer memory care services will be able to group the residents by the level of care which is needed and the progression of their memory loss.  For this reason, the care provided within the senior care facility will be varying depending upon the level of care necessary for the senior residents.

Why it is important to be with like-“minded” people:

  1. A feeling of belonging
  2. The same level of care
