    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.

    Using mouse slows the response time. Touchscreen would make more sense.
