Puzzles to Remember
On June 22, I gave a presentation about PuzzlesToRemember at a HOPE Luncheon. HOPE is part of the Alzheimer’s Disease Center at Boston University Medical School. HOPE stands for Health Outreach Program for the Elderly. There were over 150 participants at the Luncheon, whose main purpose was to thank participants for volunteering their time to take part in medical studies.
As part of my presentation, I brought along sample puzzle boards from Springbok. These Springbok puzzles, made especially to meet the needs of Alzheimer’s patients, will soon be going into production. They will have either 12 or 36 large, easy to handle pieces. The themes will be geared toward memory provoking images for adults. We hope many people will benefit from them.
