Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Alzheimer's Care Armenia created the Memory Club to slow the progression of memory loss in the elderly. Our project aimed to incorporate participant's childhood games into the Memory Club; to decrease anxiety and enhance their quality of life by improving their overall cognitive functioning. To accomplish our goal, we researched Armenian childhood games, evaluated each game for cognitive benefits, and assessed the results. The success of the program was measured using two standardized tests given to the participants and a comparison group: the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) and Geriatric Anxiety Scale 10 Item (GAS-10). The test results were inconclusive, however, based on the changes seen in the participants' behavior, emotions, and mental state, the Memory Club was deemed a success.
