This is an app for your smart phone. Free to download and play, this app has a continuously updating set of scientific games and cognitive challenges designed to improve memory and stimulate your brain. The biggest part of these games is that they are mostly focused on getting you to pay attention to fine detail, a skill lost in dementia.
Several websites recommend this app, including ones for children with ADHD. The games help strengthen the ability to pay attention to the task at hand. This helps your brain filter out unnecessary information and distractions.
This app is designed for people with Alzheimer’s and therefore isn’t just a collection of games. Don’t worry, Clevermind does have plenty of games and activities to help retain memory, but this app goes so far beyond that.
It also has sections to help organize and record social functions, medications, doctors information, and food information. This app actually helps you remember to eat properly when you are supposed to eat.
It is designed to be easy to use, especially for people with declining eyesight. It also has a virtual assistant some people have equated with Siri (from Apple).
