Fringe Benefits of Bridge? Brainpower!!!

Playing your cards right can help keep you sharp long after retirement

by Jon Saraceno,  AARP Bulletin, March 2015

Bridge makes us use our brains.picture of brain

When doctors evaluate games that are most effective in

staving off dementia, bridge is always at the top of the list

Bridge players are the most successful agers on earth.

Although it cannot cure Alzheimer's, bridge is a wonderful game

to slow the onset and progression of Alzheimer's.
