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 Assistant Director, Hailey Richman, age 8, has been distributing puzzles to nursing facilities in the New York area. Hailey 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.

A Note of Thanks for the Springbok PuzzlesToRemember

Today, I received this note of thanks from Patricia in San Angelo, Texas:

Dear Max,

Because of your website, Puzzles to Remember, I found the link to Springbok Puzzles and was so very glad to find the perfect puzzle for my mother … Chocolate Sweetheart.  With only 12 pieces and a theme that she loves, we will have a grand time putting it together and without frustration.
I hope to build a collection of puzzles for all the residents at Sagecrest Alzheimer’s Care Center in San Angelo, Texas to share and enjoy.  The bright colors and themes of the Springbok puzzles are inspired, and I thank you for introducing me to them.

Sincerely,
Patricia

I hope the residents at the SAgecrest Alzheimer's Care Center have a wonderful time with these puzzles!
