When Nintendo launched their latest generation Nintendo Wii for the couch potatoes of the world, it also opened a door for those “confined” to a sitting position.
At Patti’s care facility Nintendo Wii when played on their mega screen TV has become a portal to virtual bowling, golf, etc and all variety of simple video games. I understand from the facility activity coordinator that this is becoming a standard among care facilities / nursing homes everywhere.
So the next time you hear the sounds of racing cars, tennis, baseball, golf, bowling, or boxing accompanied by cheers, groans, laughter and possibly even cursing coming from a party room it may not just be teen agers. <grin>
Caregivingly Yours, Patrick Leer
