LEGO Helping Revive Memories In Elderly

I think we can all agree LEGO® bricks are pretty cool. Although a popular toy with kids, there is also a vast fandom in adults, but it seem it can even go beyond that as well. The BBC have posted an intersting story about a Manchester Elderly Care Home who have started to hold LEGO play sessions for their older residents. A hours ‘play’ with LEGO is helping people to rediscover communication skills, encourage them to socialise and even relive past memories, which can be a little fuzzy in old age. As much as I enjoy seeing new sets and building them, it’s stuff like this which really delights me.
