Puzzles to Remember
With a recent donation of 150 puzzles from Ceaco Puzzles, PuzzlesToRemember has now donated over 39,000 puzzles to nursing facilities.
The Ceaco puzzles range from 350 pieces to 1000 pieces, and they will be donated to assisted living facilities.
Springbok PuzzlesToRemember, 36 large sized piece puzzles, are donated to facilities caring for Alzheimer's and dementia patients.
PuzzlesToRemember attempts to match up the level of difficulty of the puzzles to the various facilities and the patient population it serves.
With puzzles having been donated to over 2700 facilities, PuzzlesToRemember has provided puzzles for over 80,000 seniors in nursing facilities.
