Puzzles To Remember

PUZZLES TO REMEMBER is a 501(c)3 organization that provides puzzles to nursing homes, veterans facilities, and other facilities that care for Alzheimer's and dementia patients. Puzzles To Remember was founded in 2008 by Max Wallack, who recognized the calming effect of puzzles and many other benefits on people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Max graduated from Boston University, Summa Cum Laude, in 2015, and is now a medical school student.

Since 2011, Puzzles To Remember’s Associate Director, Hailey Richman, now age 10, has been helping distribute puzzles to nursing facilities around the globe. Hailey also spends time doing the puzzles with nursing home residents. She always brightens their days.

If you have puzzles that you would like to donate, please contact us at PuzzlesToRemember@gmail.com and we will find a location near you where you can bring your puzzles. We can also provide you with a donation letter so that you can claim the value of your puzzles as a tax deduction.

Puzzles Sent to 19 Adult Day Care Centers

Puzzles to Remember

Today, I packed puzzles to send to 19 Adult Day Care Centers. Each center will be receiving between 6 and 20 puzzles. I have included a variety of puzzles for each center, ranging from puzzles of 1000 pieces to the Springbok PuzzlesToRemember of only 12 pieces.

About 60% of the puzzles being shipped are new. They have been donated by manufacturers and by individuals. The remaining puzzles are used, but in great condition. Some of them are really beautiful vintage puzzles.

I hope the participants at these Adult Day Care Centers enjoy these puzzles!

Max Wallack is a student at Boston University Academy. His great grandmother, Gertrude, suffered from Alzheimer's disease. Max is the founder of PUZZLES TO REMEMBER. PTR is a project that provides puzzles to nursing homes and veterans institutions that care for Alzheimer's and dementia patients.
