The Work-It Series

The ‘Work It’ series has been created to provide opportunities for people with dementia to stimulate their brains. In other words, lets ‘work it’. Much of the decline that we see in dementia arises due to disuse. Research on the neuroplasticity of the brain, and on excess disability, clearly indicates that cognitive capacity can be enhanced when the brain is stimulated. Using the DementiAbility Methods, the Montessori way, the emphasis is placed on presenting the activity to a person at his or her level of ability. The trivia questions in this booklet are presented with the easiest ones at the beginning of the book and then the level of difficulty increases as you move through the book. The easy ones may be too easy in the earlier stages of dementia, but may be a good starting place for all. If they are too easy, simply move into Level II. The answers are presented on the bottom of each page.
