I guess it depends on what your father consider's to be the "answer to his prayers", but in general any activity that a patient participates in that they enjoy is considered very healthy for a patient. The more one can exercise the brain and think, it can certainly not hurt. Coming from personal experience my grandmother did very well with these types of games and enjoyed them.
It is also critical to keep your father active with other activites, so please try to encourage him to also remain physically active, and not just play games on his tablet or phone.

We strongly believe that the best most effective forms of memory care are those that deal with that individuals own memories from their recent and distant past. We memories can be recalled from things your father actually experienced or was present for, these types of events do more to stimulate a response or memory recall because these memories actually exist in their mind, it is simple very difficult for them to pull them out. So images, sound, music, items and other elements that are from their actual past really go further in helping them with their memory deficits. Often these recalled moments are only temporary, but repetition is the key in making these memories longer lasting and possible even permanent again.
The one thing to remember is every mind is profoundly different and of course every life lived is different. But familiarity is often more effective that what is presented in typical memory care apps. Its all about "personalizing" the memory care session. This yeilds the best results.
Hope this helps. Wishing you the very best with your dad and his memory care.
