With dementia come problems with memory and cognition – obstacles to successful board game enjoyment. However, the right board games, chosen wisely, can actually help. Indeed one study into the use of Bingo with dementia patients concluded that “a simple cognitive activity such as Bingo can be of great value to the daily management of Alzheimer’s patients”.
