As the years go by or due to specific pathologies, elderly people’s performance tends to diminish and their ability to use their cognitive resources shrinks exponentially.
“An active mind” offers a programme of cognitive stimulation for the elderly through the use of hundreds of exercises and activities, to be done in the book or in an experiential fashion.
The book is divided into 8 sections, through which the person is stimulated not only on a strictly cognitive level but also on a sensorial and emotional level:
– Language workshops
– Visual-spatial exercises
– Mnestic activities
– Creative workshops
– Social activities
– Exercises on reasoning
– Workshop on emotions
– Activities with music.
Each part comprises a selection of worksheets which are easy-to-use and understand in order to help the elderly maintain and regain, according to their individual potential and in a recreational way, those resources which tend to spontaneously fall into decline.
The clear, essential design, the heterogeneity of the exercises and the practicality of the book make it an effective tool for professional caregivers, family members and the elderly themselves.
