Learning cards for cognitive training with different levels of difficulty.
b.- Who conducted the program / service activity? (What role, what qualifications, etc.)
Occupational therapists members of the company specialized in older people.

7 - METHODOLOGY USED (presentations, pair work, group work, peers, mentors, blended
learning, e-learning, etc.)
Work is done through cognitive cards aimed at stimulating mental processes such as sequencing and seriation; abstraction, differentiation, order, etc., and, secondarily aimed at improving memory or attention, among other abilities. These cards vary their difficulty according to each person. Exercises last about 45 minutes, included in the psycho-stimulation program.

It is very important that cognitive cards are graduated, that user’s educational level is known and that they are motivated to do them, avoiding feelings of frustration or discomfort.
