Puzzles to Remember
I had a nice meeting today with Dr. Ellison at Mclean Hosptal. Dr. Ellison is Clinical Director of Geriatric Psychiatry at McLean. McLean is Harvard Medical School's Mental Health Hospital, and one of the best in the country. Dr. Ellison said that Springbok's PuzzlesToRemember can give Alzheimer's patients a feeling of accomplishment even if they don't remember the puzzle afterwards. He said the emotion and feeling of accomplishment still remain. He was pleased to receive the puzzles.
