Ask a millenial what Chicken Foot is, and I'm 99% sure you won't get a correct answer. But try asking Grandma and Grandpa, and you'll probably get the right answer...and a smile!
So Chicken Foot is actually....Dominoes!
Check out the video below to see how this forgotten favorite is played!
Seniors at assisted living facilities, personal care homes, skilled nursing facilities, and retirement communities love to play games! And if the games are a throwback to their younger years, it's all the more welcomed!
Here at Stonehenge Senior Living, Chicken Foot is on the activity schedule every week! Look at those smiling faces!
As our loved ones age, it can be challenging to know how to interact in a meaningful way, especially if dementia or age-related conditions limit their memory or abilities.
However, research shows that introducing games, music, or photos from the past can actually help stimulate the brain and slow down the degeneration. Positive mental health is the first line of defense against age-related ailments.
So, the next time you have an opportunity to spend some quality time with Mom, Dad, Grandma or Grandpa, choose a game like Chicken Foot to bring back some great old memories, while creating priceless new ones!
