Unlike the minds of younger adults which are ever active as a result of constantly engaging in work or school activities, the brains of seniors tend to slow down with retirement. As a result, remembering things becomes a bit difficult or even totally impossible.
It is because of this that our seniors must exercise their brains and try new things. Lack of brain stimulation has already been linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s, feelings of loneliness, and depression.
At Nest & Care, we understand that regularly participating in sensory activities can boost creativity, kill boredom, and increase memory function in seniors. That is why we offer our mental stimulation service – a service that is dedicated to the psychological well-being of our clients.
Here are just some of the mind-stimulating activities we offer:
- Board Games

- Card Games
- Chess and Strategy Games

- Physical Exercises and Healthy Lifestyles
