For this purpose, 30 elderly women aged 65 to 85 years was selected based on the inclusion criteria in a sample available from the East Azarbaijan Province Elderly Care Center and randomly divided into two experimental groups of 15 people and a control group of 15 people. The measurement tool of this research was Wechsler Memory Scale. The experimental groups were intervened for 8 weeks, 3 one-hour sessions per week.
