My wife who is now in her fifth year since diagnosis was initially reluctant to take up any sort of puzzle book to exercise her brain. Now I cannot get her away from them, which is good in one way, but is at the expense of any other home-based activity. She will sit doing them happily for hours on end. She cannot follow TV and in spite of having bought half a dozen paperback novels to try, they have not captured her interest either. I have recently purchased The Memory Activity Book to also try, but are there any other successes out there that have stimulated wider reading or watching activities?
