Health Tip: Brain Games for Seniors

(HealthDay News) -- Many doctors encourage seniors to use brain fitness games as a means to help deal with dementia, Alzheimer's and other cognitive diseases, says SeniorLiving.org.

While research remains inconclusive, there appears to be a correlation between brain games and brain health.

The website says brain games that may help seniors include:

  • Memory games, such as Match and Simon.

  • Word games, such as word searches and Scrabble.

  • Electronic games, such as Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune and Family Feud.

  • Board games, such as Chess and Checkers.

  • Interactive Wii and X-Box games.

  • Trivia games, such as Trivial Pursuit.
