Craigslist Helps Locate Puzzles for Alzheimer's Patients

One day last week, I was just perusing Craigslist when I noticed that a man named James, in a neighboring town, was moving and willing to give away 24 puzzles he had stored in his attic.

I contacted James. Not only was he willing to donate his puzzles to PuzzlesToRemember, he also offered to set up a collection bin at his local library.

Thank you, James. Your puzzles will provide great comfort to many Alzheimer's patients. Thank you also for your willingness to continue helping PuzzlesToRemember by collecting puzzles at your library!

HOPE Luncheon

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.
