Puzzles to Remember
As of today, PuzzlesToRemember has distributed over 26,000 jigsaw puzzles to Alzheimer's Facilities, Adult Day Cares, and Memory Cafes.
These puzzles have been distributed to 2149 facilities around the world. They include facilities in every state, plus Canada, Aruba, Australia, Colombia, England, France, Mexico, Poland, Singapore, and South Africa.
I am happy that these include about 55 Memory Cafes. I am a huge advocate of Memory Cafes. I believe they are immensely helpful to both those with Alzheimer's disease and their care partners.
Here is a link to many memory cafes on the Third Age Services website: http://tinyurl.com/kq9n6xg
"The ABC Summer of Service Awards, in collaboration with Disney Friends for Change, is an initiative that inspires kids and their families to make a lasting, positive change by helping people, communities, and the planet."
This will enable me to provide additional puzzles for memory cafes and Alzheimer's facilities. If you know of such a facility that would like to receive, at no cost, two of the Springbok PuzzlesToRemember, please email me at PuzzlesToRemember@gmail.com. •
