Puzzles to Remember
Today, Springbok PuzzlesToRemember were sent out to an additional 100 Alzheimer’s facilities. The feedback continues to be very positive. Here is an email I received today:
Just to let you know the Puzzles have arrived. They arrived today which is a day P does not go to Day Care so I got him to do one straightaway. He was so pleased with himself that he could do it and when he had finished it he even asked me if I wanted a cup of tea and got up and made me one.. That is the first time he has made a cup of tea for several weeks.
Our daughter arrived just after he had finished it and he couldn't wait to tell her he had done a jigsaw by himself.
I am so grateful to you for your help.
P is still sitting there saying 'I did that puzzle'. We are going out for a drive soon so I will get him to try another one this afternoon. The one he did is the New York one.
My Sincere thanks
