Video games are a big deal these days—especially with those 65 and over! In retirement homes across the United States, many seniors are reliving their glory days at the neigbourhood bowling alley through the wonder of Wii Bowling. Some of the residents are even organizing themselves into bowling teams (all part of the National Senior League, visit: www.nslgames.com for more info) complete with playoffs and championships.
But Wii bowling isn’t just fun and games—there are health benefits too such as encouraging seniors to get up and moving as well as boosting the level of camaraderie among residents.
