  • A great means of allowing residents to use their minds as well as a fantastic source of entertainment - a fun activity where everyone can get involved!

"There are many quiz books on the market, but mainly written for the enthusiast and much too difficult. I have never found a quiz book for the elderly. This book is my solution to the problem - a quiz which allows for a range of abilities and the best in terms of residents' enjoyment."
