Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Thinkwich is a book originally conceived to help seniors experiencing age-related difficulties that may range from memory problems, increased forgetfulness, to mild cognitive impairment. Since publication the book's potential scope of use has been expanded to also include post-stroke recovery, and part use in cases of Alzheimer's disease and dementia. There are over four hundred questions in specially arranged question lists, designed for a family to use to stimulate deeper thinking and mental activity on the part of an elderly parent. Questions about the senior's past are sandwiched between light general questions, or those involving memory or logic*. Allowing an elderly relative to engage in reminiscence about specific events in days gone by while also actively using the thinking and recall skills needed for daily life. (*Note: only questions in the book that encourage reminiscence are suitable for use in the case of Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. All this offering something of a gentle mental workout, to help keep the brain sharper, and better prepared for the challenges ahead. (** Extract from first question list below. ) Of course, the very act of using the book with the relative concerned also helps in terms of sociability, another key area of mental health; it provides a good opportunity for those involved to engage and interact in a meaningful way. If thinkwich can make even a small difference in the cognitive health of someone you care about, then we've accomplished our goal. So with that, it's over to you! *Extract from first question list: (The questions are asked by the family, face-to-face or via a video call/ regular call): TW1 (H=Hint/ A= Answer) Try to memorize this card sequence (You'll be asked again at the end of the quiz!): 7 Hearts, 4 Hearts, 7 Diamonds (repeat x2) Can you recall a comedy show you used to watch way back when?
