For the most part of my professional life I’ve been working with elderly people. More emphasis now is on preventive measures in order to postpone or even to prevent occurrence of some unpleasant companions of old age: joints pain, hypertension, heart deceases, diabetes, mental problems etc… Ability to take care of him/her self and live independently is crucial for overall well-being of our senior citizens. Just as regular physical exercises help keep our bodies fit, mind teasing games are good exercises for brain. Solving crosswords, rebuses, puzzles, Sudoku helps concentration, keeps mind sharp and focused. In our Center these activities are encouraged and supported. Groups of Participants work together, often with help of a staff member. People combine their knowledge and experiences and with mutual efforts solve the puzzles. They exercise their brains and enjoy communication with friends at the same time!
