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 from Harvard Medical School in 2020.

Beginning in 2020, Hailey Richman is the Executive Director of PuzzlesToRemember. Since 2011, Hailey has been distributing puzzles to nursing facilities around the globe. Hailey also spends time doing the puzzles with nursing home residents. She always brightens their days.  Hailey is also the founder of KidCaregivers.com, where she provides advice for children dealing with dementia in their family members. Hailey has begun a program called PuzzleTime which involves volunteer students going to nursing facilities and doing puzzles with their residents. Max serves as a mentor to the KidCaregivers program.

If you have puzzles that you would like to donate, please contact us at Puzzles2Remember@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.

How To Help Our Organization :-)

Share

Would you like to support our organization? Do you know middle school and high school students that would like community service credit? Here is how to help! 1) Puzzle Drive: put a big box in the lobby of the school, library, bank etc with our flier attached to it. Attach a note to the box stating that the puzzles will be collected to go to nursing homes/assisted living facilities to benefit the Alzheimer's residents. 2) Do a GoFundMe to collect $$ to purchase puzzles to distribute to nursing homes. You can use our flier for the description. https://www.springbok-puzzles.com/alzheimer-s.../1849.htm 3) Ask friends and family on social media to donate their used puzzles to your home so Mia can bring them to facilities. Please let us know if you have any questions! Sincerely, Hailey Richman
