Let’s get the party started:
Fun games you can play virtually!
Studies demonstrate that card games, puzzles, and board games are good mental stimuli and help promote brain health. This is especially true for older adults. Games also stimulate the immune system and can trigger the use of visualization, memory and sequencing skills. As a value added to the Healthy Living Virtual Expo we compiled a variety of virtual games you can play with family and friends.
