The Importance of Mental Exercise!

There are a great number of older people who experience a loss of cognitive skills and abilities to different degrees. Just as your body needs physical exercise to keep fit, the brain needs mental exercise to stay active and alive. Mental exercise stimulates the brain, providing long-lasting positive effects regarding thinking, reasoning skills and memory. A fun way to get your dose of mental exercise is through playing games. Maybe check out the games online. We are all looking forward to the day when our doors can be opened wide and welcome you all back to TGP.
