Games Prolong the Lifetime of Alzheimer’s Disease Patients

What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is called AD in short.  The other names of this disease will make us understand the actuality of this disease more.  SDAT is the another name of AD and it is expanded as senile dementia of the Alzheimer type or PDDAT and it is expanded as primary degenerative dementia of the Alzheimer's type.  Generally, all over the world this disease is termed as Alzheimer’s in short.  This is mainly a general type of dementia.  The name was given to this disease by a neurophysiologist name Alois Alzheimer, a German, who did describe about this disease condition for the first time to the world.  Alzheimer’s is a terminal illness as it is incurable and also degenerative.  The common symptoms of this disease are the lack of ability to create new memories, such as complexity in brining to mind newly scrutinized events or facts. Most probably a brain scan will reveal the existence of this disease accompanied by some cognitive tests, as well as performance review tests. In the matured phases, the patient will get symptoms, such as bewilderment, hostility and tetchiness, mood hang-down, language crash, and memory loss.  These failures gradually will lead the patient to death.

Playing Games Enhance the Lifetime of Alzheimer’s patient:  Now we come to the point, Alzheimer’s patients struggle with memory loss.  

These patients can hold back their memory power by playing some games either board games or card games, or any word games, such as Sudo-Ku. Puzzle-solving games will activate brain neurons and so they can deflect their memory skills more for a prolonged period. 

The games, such as dragger, guess the colors, rotate, mastercards, Sudoku, and chess are the best examples of brain games.  These games activate the nerves in the brain and so these patients can be benefited.
