Memory Games

Some research has generated hope that one day it might be possible to slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease, delay its symptoms or even prevent it from occurring at all. Although there is preliminary data to support the benefit of some interventions, nothing at this time has definitively been shown to prevent Alzheimer's disease or other dementias. But games aren't always tools; sometimes they are just for fun. And if your brain strengthens in the process, all the better!

Please note that these memory games are not tests for Alzheimer's disease. If you, or a member of your family are concerned about memory problems, it is important that you discuss these issues with a qualified physician.
