Puzzles to Remember
Springbok has produced four new images for their specialized line of Springbok’s PuzzlesToRemember, made specifically to meet the needs of Alzheimer’s patients. You may click on the name of the puzzle under each image to order that puzzle.
As part of Springbok Cares, their program to give back to society, they are also supplying these puzzles free, this week, to fifty Alzheimer’s facilities that I have chosen.
Alzheimer’s caregivers, both in facilities and in home care, attest to the value of these puzzles as a tool to promote positive interaction between patients and caregivers, as well as a mood-lifting tool that provides the patients with a sense of accomplishment that lasts well beyond the puzzle-making session.
PUZZLES TO REMEMBER. PTR is a project that provides puzzles to nursing homes and veterans institutions that care for Alzheimer's and dementia patients.
