Showing that you are never too old to learn something new! Residents at Castra, Southern Cross Care’s aged care service in Murgon, are using technology-based Brain Trainers to engage and challenge each other and themselves.
Brain Trainers is great as a one-on-one activity or for small groups. It involves long and short term memory activities offering quizzes and games that cater for all levels of cognitive ability. It is so popular at Castra the booking schedule is full! Groups of 10 residents are coming together weekly to play bingo and trivia and are getting a real thrill out of creating their own individual profile that includes their photo and the ability to track their progress. Thanks to the Castra Auxiliary who raised the funds to purchase the technology in May 2015. It’s easy to see why it’s been a huge success.
