Puzzles To Remember

PUZZLES TO REMEMBER is a 501(c)3 organization that provides puzzles to nursing homes, veterans facilities, and other facilities that care for Alzheimer's and dementia patients. Puzzles To Remember was founded in 2008 by Max Wallack, who recognized the calming effect of puzzles and many other benefits on people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Max graduated from Boston University, Summa Cum Laude, in 2015, and is now a medical school student.

Since 2011, Puzzles To Remember’s Associate Director, Hailey Richman, now age 10, has been helping distribute puzzles to nursing facilities around the globe. Hailey also spends time doing the puzzles with nursing home residents. She always brightens their days.

If you have puzzles that you would like to donate, please contact us at PuzzlesToRemember@gmail.com and we will find a location near you where you can bring your puzzles. We can also provide you with a donation letter so that you can claim the value of your puzzles as a tax deduction.

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.


Coral Carnival


Country Mill

Crimson Road



Durango Express


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.

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.
