Puzzles to Remember
Springbok Puzzles has donated $500 toward providing Springbok’s PuzzlesToRemember to Alzheimer’s facilities. These puzzles are beautiful, artistic images, provided in 36 large-sized pieces in order to meet the needs of Alzheimer’s patients.
These funds will allow PuzzlesToRemember to supply puzzles to an additional 30 Alzheimer’s facilities. I receive consistent feedback about how beneficial these puzzles are to the patients. They are very calming and put a smile on the faces of these patients.
Research is showing that working on puzzles may significantly extend the time during which an Alzheimer’s patient is able to remain cognitively functional in society.
Thank you, Springbok, for developing this line of puzzles. Thank you, also, for honoring Dorothy DeMarco in this wonderful way. We all miss her very much.
Below are some images of the puzzles for Alzheimer’s patients, created by Springbok. They can be ordered here.
