For seniors, memory can be activated with simple exercises, such as proverbs and sayings. Proverbs are known to exist for every situation in life and many have accompanied seniors throughout their lives, so proverbs are ideal for memory training. One can read out a part of a proverb or a saying and the seniors can answer alone or in the group also together.
You can also ask about opposites, such as cold-warm or black-and-white.
But also the old game city-country-river always finds favor with seniors.
It can also be entertaining when seniors have to associate the first letter of their first name with a food, for example, in the sense of “Sam prefers to eat sausages” or “Priszilla likes pineapple best.”
