    I am also look­ing for activ­i­ties for seniors with early alzheimers dis­ease and can not use a com­puter. Can any one help?

  3. Terri, many of these teasers can be used by “seniors”. Age itself is not the best pre­dic­tor of cog­ni­tive function…so you will need to decide what teasers can be appropriate.

    Tammy: you should con­sult the local chap­ter of the Alzheimer’s Asso­ci­a­tion, they do have many resources you will find valuable.
