Brain Games for Senior Care: What is Neurobics?

Here's a popular seated Neurobics I do which I call Tap-Claps. Everyone is facing me so they can see the rhythm I tap out with my hands on my lap / clap. Eg. Tap, tap, clap; tap, tap, clap. Residents imitate what I'm doing. Repeat a few times, then change it up. Eg. Tap,tap,tap,tap,clap,clap. I speak out what we're doing as we're doing it.

This is a great idea! Thank you. You could add some sports trading cards to the cart, depending on the season. Eg. Baseball cards in the spring.
