HappyNeuron Pro is the perfect resource for activity directors working with seniors in nursing homes. As we get older, people may experience cognitive deficits in memory and spatial awareness. Searching for different fun activities that support cognitive engagement can often be time-consuming and challenging.
With HappyNeuron Pro, activity directors and clinical providers have 45+ different computer-based tasks that target different cognitive skills. All of these tasks come with multiple settings and variable difficulty. Each activity features thousands of data sets, so they can be repeated with new content every time. This takes away the burden of printing out materials to use and gives the therapist more time with their client to do therapy.
