Springbok PuzzlesToRemember for Alzheimer’s Patients

Puzzles to Remember

An additional 14 Alzheimer’s facilities will be receiving Springbok PuzzlesToRemember this week.

These facilities have specialized units specifically for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. They are each being sent a 12 piece puzzle and a 36 piece puzzle. These puzzles have the overall size of 18” by 23.5”, so the pieces are large and easy to grasp. The colors are bright, and the images are meant to be memory provoking.




I hope these puzzles give their residents many pleasant hours. To see other puzzles or to order puzzles click here.

Donate Your Jigsaw Puzzles For Alzheimer's Patients

Share

Puzzles to Remember

Lately, I have been hearing from many people who say they have stacks of jigsaw puzzles that they are no longer using. These puzzles could be helping many people with Early Cognitive Impairment and those with Alzheimer’s disease.

What I have been doing is finding facilities in each person’s area where they can bring their jigsaw puzzles. I also send each person a donation letter which lists how many puzzles they are donating, and they are able to take the value of these puzzles as a tax donation.

Everyone wins!

If you have jigsaw puzzles to donate, please email me at PuzzlesToRemember@gmail.com.
