Senior citizens are one of the groups that most enjoy playing games and have most time to do so. This is very good, of course, because it fills their time, encourages them to think, and keeps them active. At present, however, for various reasons, the number of games available at nursing homes is very small.
With Dau Sènior, we hope to launch a new activity for elderly people. We want to show that they can play many more games, benefitting greatly from such activity: there are games that they can not only enjoy, but will help them to keep their memory sharp, make them laugh, encourage them to make conceptual associations, enjoy working in teams, etc. Games are also a very powerful tool to encourage inter-generational relations.
In cooperation with Sant Andreu District Authority (Barcelona City Council) and Sant Andreu Council of the Elderly, various publishers provide a series of games suitable for elderly people.
