Puzzles to Remember
Philips Healthcare in Andover MA has taken on collecting puzzles for PuzzlesToRemember as an important project. Yesterday, they donated 148 puzzles. They have also publicized the cause on their internal website, and employees from many departments have been contributing.
In January, I will have the opportunity to visit their company and give a presentation about PuzzlesToRemember and, possibly, about some of the Alzheimer’s research I am doing at Boston Medical Center. The Philips employees have decided to continue collecting puzzles, showing their commitment to help patients who can benefit from this activity.
Below is a photo of the puzzles Philips Corporation donated yesterday. Even the soccer ball can be useful as tossing a ball around the room is often used as a physical therapy exercise for Alzheimer’s patients.
PUZZLES TO REMEMBER. PTR is a project that provides puzzles to nursing homes and veterans institutions that care for Alzheimer's and dementia patients.
