Discover Scarlett, a brain training app on tablet, designed by Dynseo that helps you train your memory at your own pace.
The Dynseo team is very involved in Alzheimer’s research. With more than 30 games already available, players can use their ancient memory.
Scarlett goes everywhere with you, as the app does not need Wi-Fi to work (Wi-Fi required only for updates).
Did you know that every year about 350 thousand people are affected by Alzheimer’s disease in the world?
Today, Scarlett follows seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s disease thanks to their speech therapists and occupational therapists, at home, or in professional facilities and retirement homes. All the establishments that wish to subscribe to the Scarlett program can benefit from a web monitoring platform to see the evolution and the improvement of the people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease to personalize their care.
Alzheimer’s is a degenerative pathology, so the goal of cognitive stimulation is to slow down the cognitive decline. Therefore, working with a person with Alzheimer’s is possible with adapted activities. The type of activity depends on the stage of the disease and the needs of the senior.
The Scarlett program can be used at each stage of Alzheimer’s and can be adapted to each senior.
I want to receive the complete guide to support for people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
Stage 1 – Alzheimer’s
At this stage, there are no obvious symptoms yet. Cognitive stimulation can be offered to maintain cognitive functions active.
You can use the games at the difficult level and offer games that require good skills:
Put the words in the right order to make up the proverb.
With this game, you can stimulate language, organization, and logic.
Fill in the grid with the numbers or shapes following the rules of classic Sudoku.
With this game, you can stimulate logic, attention, and the working memory.
If the game is difficult with numbers, there is also a mode with shapes.
Stage 2 – Alzheimer’s
At this stage, the senior begins to have mild memory problems.
These disorders do not yet affect the person’s daily life, but it is important to identify these symptoms for early intervention.
A Card A Date
Put the proposed events in chronological order.
With this game, you can stimulate the long-term memory and start interesting conversations.
Memorize the order of the cards.

At this point, the symptoms start to become more obvious, and it is possible to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease.
Symptoms are often forgetfulness of words or events and difficulty organizing.
You can start using the games at the middle level.

Using games can be entertaining and can also influence mood.
Solve the math problems.
With this game, you can stimulate mathematical skills.

Connect the bubbles in ascending order.
With this game, you can stimulate sequencing and attention.
The Musical Ear
Recognize the proposed sounds from the categories (sounds, instruments, animals).
With this game, you can stimulate auditory discrimination.
Use the “animal” mode with the more fragile seniors, animals are easier to recognize.
Scarlett can be used for home help or in nursing homes. The simple and intuitive interface allows seniors to use it independently.
In the early stages of Alzheimer’s, it will be possible to ask the senior to play independently in between sessions to maintain cognitive stimulation.
In Alzheimer’s disease, the connection with caregivers or family becomes ever weaker. Especially for the family, it is difficult to see their loved one without being able to interact with them as before.
Playing is a soothing and fun activity that makes shared moments enjoyable. To that end, Scarlett allows you to create and maintain a bond with the senior. Games are culturally adapted and can evoke memories to be shared and create conversation with the help of images and key words.
The most common games used for bonding are:
Answer general knowledge questions.
A Text A Day
Read excerpts of texts from famous writers.
Scarlett also offers games for two to maintain the social link, in these games the screen is divided in two and each player plays on his side.
The games that have the 2-player mode are:

Tap the moles as soon as they appear.
