December 28th is National Card Playing Day! Playing cards is not only fun for the whole family and friends, but it can improve your memory and has been linked to larger brain volume! People of any age and ability can enjoy, and all you need is a deck of cards. Playing weekly games of Bridge (or any card game!) can offer both intellectual and social stimulation. Private Home Care can sure support any activity that is fun and is healthy for your brain!
Other great brain-stimulating games include checkers, mahjong, backgammon, chinese checkers dominoes, scrabble, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles and more.
