BestAlzheimersProducts Donates Puzzles to PuzzlesToRemember

Puzzles to Remember



I want to thank Holly at www.BestAlzheimersProducts.com for donating 24 nice puzzles to PuzzlesToRemember. Her company thought this group of puzzles was a bit too complicated for Alzheimer’s patients, so I agreed to find them a home where they can help elders with early mild cognitive impairment.

BestAlzheimersProducts was founded by caregivers to help other caregivers. Their reason was that

"One of the first things we learned when we started caring for Bernice was that she was less moody, more energetic, more communicative and happier when we kept her active."

BestAlzheimersProducts provide “cognitive and sensory stimulation and . . . inspire conversation and socialization.” They also have a growing inventory of Aids for Daily Living and safety products.

I, personally, am very proud that BestAlzheimersProducts has chosen to carry the Springbok’s PuzzlesToRemember. They can be seen here. I receive constant feedback about the value of 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.
