hi.  I am a friend/ caregiver of one who is in the early stages of Dementia. 

My friend has an I pad, which seems to keep her mind stimulated, but I am trying to find some positive things.. (positive in BOLD ) activities which she can engage in.  on an I pad.

Right now, she watches a lot of you tube videos which are neither positive nor helpful, in my opinion, but she enjoys them, so that is good.  But I would like to find other things for her to engage in which will help.

Can anyone suggest good I pad games or puzzles which are useable for those with mild dementia?

Thanks in advance

Alice

They look too complicated for a PWD to use alone IMHO.

My iPad has 60Hz refresh rate. Can I use it with AlzLife?

All iPhones and  iPads (except iPad Pro) have refresh rate 60Hz. You can use AlzLife on these models, however for 40Hz light therapy you need a device with a higher refresh rate. On devices with 60Hz refresh rate, the maximum flickering rate is 30Hz. Flickering frequencies less than 40Hz may be less effective in the clearance of amyloid beta protein.

At the time of this release, the only two devices that can generate 40Hz stimulation are iPad Pro 10.5 and iPad Pro 12.9 inches 2017 or newer.
