Because the reaction to the clue is almost automatic, this activity for people with dementia and Alzheimer's will surprise you by the responses it draws out from the most unexpected people. The cue cards and answer cards offer a variety of games and activities that are fun and rewarding.

Play Games with Two to Four Players...
Give each participant three answer cards, placed face up in front of them. Have the first player pick an expression from the deck and read it out loud. Everyone can call out the answer and if anyone has the answer card, they turn it over. The game continues until all the answer cards are turned over (remember, we do not encourage games that have winners and losers). Add more challenge by using more cards or cards from different decks.
