Mind games that can sharpen the brain

Q. My wife and I are in our ’80s and living in an assisted-living facility. My wife was recently diagnosed with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease. We participate in many activities that keep us physically and socially engaged all day long. Our issues are in the evening, when it’s just the two of us. My wife is searching for “mind games” that we can play at night that may slow the progression of the Alzheimer’s. We are computer-literate, have an iPad (we Skype with our grandchildren), and are able to navigate games and apps. But there are so many choices out there. What do you recommend?
