The Memory Game

The Memory Game - Caregiver and caree go over memories in photo album

Back in the day, Nana would play “The Memory Game” with me.

Granted, I don’t remember what specific memory game it was, I do remember winning almost every time. Now most of these games are now referred to as matching games.

Now, we still play the game, but with different tools. I ask her to remember what she wants me to get from the store.

Now, I use a journal, Evernote, and coupons to match to sale circulars.

Do you use some version of “The Matching Game” to keep your senior’s memory sharp? ┬áDo you use this game or another game you played with as a kid? Let us know in the comments.
