Looking for newer iPad apps for Dementia
November 17, 2012 7:20 PM Subscribe
My father is 91, speaks English and an avid TV-viewer. He had never been into word games or games like Sudoku or board games. He used to play golf till his early eighties. .From the mini- metal state test
he has moderate dementia and we are hoping that together with the Aricept
that he is on, some 'engaging' apps ( as someone put it ) might stave off deterioration of his cognitive functions.

I have come across some suggestions for apps here on Ask Metafilter , Dementia and the iPad
and also in this forum, iPad for elderly/dementia
. There are some wonderful suggestions but the posts are from 2010 and some of the links in the forum don't work anymore.
I have no doubt , the earlier suggested apps can stand the test of time in its usefulness but i am hoping Mefites can suggest some more and newer apps.
