Seniors told to play Video Games

Games are for kids! That was what I am told and you are not supposed to stick to a GameBoy when you grow-up.

But hey, Malaysian Health Ministry Secretary Datuk Lee Kah Choon looks like he enjoys video games himself (I hope he is a grown man) and he is paving his way in playing video games without being reticulated upon. He has advised senior citizens to take up video games as a way to help fend off Alzheimer's disease.
"Senior citizens should engage in mental activities," he said. "A good way is to use the PS3 or play other computer or video games, as it would help to keep them alert."
When senior citizens start playing games and don't move off their chairs, it would surely be a relief for caregivers too.

I do believe keeping them alert and engage in mental activities sounds great but don't they need a bit of exercise too. I hope somebody will create some games for the senior citizens that involves physical as well as mental activities so they can remain healthy for long time. (news: source)

May be someday somebody will tell Barney theme song mp3 will help seniors to tune up their mental health too!
