Seniors_games_computer-LR.jpgWith continuous advances in technology, the internet is a big part of our lives today. It allows us to do everything from conducting research to staying connected with friends and loved ones from afar. In addition, there are also a variety of games online. There are various sites on the internet dedicated to gaming.

While games may be a fun pastime for most, they do have a lot of other benefits. Online games can be very educational and can also help with things like memory and critical thinking. Games are not just for kids these days. Seniors can also benefit from online gaming. Below are three examples of games seniors can access for free online.

1. Word Games

These types of games, which include word searches and crosswords, help seniors to keep their brains sharp, especially if they play them on a regular basis.

2. Memory Games

As we age, one of the first things to decline is memory. Frequently playing memory games may help seniors to remember things more easily. The brain is like a muscle when it comes to memory and playing games that require memory skills may be helpful in building and flexing that muscle.

3. Strategy Games

Games such as Solitaire and Mahjongg are strategy games that help seniors to sharpen their strategic thinking skills. As seniors get older, it may become increasingly harder for them to concentrate and make decisions. Strategy games are a great way to stay in practice.

There are many sites where these games can be accessed by just about anyone, but here are a few sites specifically targeted for seniors:
