ANIMATE YOUR RETIREMENT IN A NURSING HOME
When you are a senior, it can sometimes be frustrating to realize that you start forgetting things. Fortunately, some applications can help you reduce these early cognitive problems.
Stim’Art Scarlett: When you suffer from memory loss, it is essential to stimulate your cognitive abilities, regardless of the stage of the disease. Stim’Art Scarlett is a memory game program specially developed for people prone to disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other neuro-degenerative diseases.
Scarlett is used by nursing homes individually and/or collectively, but also for daily care at home by seniors prone to cognitive disorders. It has three levels of difficulty (easy, medium and difficult) so that everyone can stimulate themselves cognitively and enjoy playing.
This program is designed so that each player can progress at their own pace. Through playful and cultural games, the player works on concentration, vivacity, auditory and semantic memory, as well as visual-spatial cues.
Being a retired senior does not mean that you are no longer living or existing. It’s an opportunity to discover new things, and to be entertained by the many digital tools.
