“These Brain exercises and Memory exercises are beneficial because patients use emotional and recognition memory, in addition to their problem solving skills.”~Mitchell Slutzky, Ph.D., Clinical Geropsychologist, NY
The foundation for Memory Jogging Puzzles was built on years of personal experience, research and listening to advice from Doctors, Activity Directors and Caregivers. These professionals were working with elderly, seniors and dementia Alzheimer patients; dealing with the frustrations during activity time. I learned the frustrations and needs for elderly, seniors and dementia Alzheimer patients were the same across USA.
And most important, while testing with the elderly, Alzheimer’s and Dementia care residents and observing their body language; I saw their eyes light up and where there was frustration. I got first hand approval of my products before I put them on the market from those who I developed them for. It was a moving experience for me.
Size does make a difference
Large piece puzzles are wooden memory puzzles – Lap size 6×8” – keeps puzzle and puzzle pieces visible and within reach. Made of ¼” thick plywood makes them extremely durable. Chunky large piece puzzle is great for those with arthritis, shaky or large hands.
One size puzzle does NOT meet everyone’s needs.
There isn’t ONE stage of dementia and we shouldn’t expect everyone to fit into ONE category when it comes to brain exercise and memory exercise.

The size and shape of each piece is determined by user level or stage in dementia care.
Different levels for Different Stages
To enable users at different levels or stages to feel a sense of achievement and pride, I developed three wooden large piece puzzles: 6 piece wooden puzzles for middle stages; 12 piece wooden puzzles for early and middle stages. And, 20 piece wooden puzzles is recommended for seniors and those in early stages of dementia care.
These memory puzzles have unique interesting cuts and have been tested by seniors, those in early Alzheimer dementia care with huge success. My main focus is on the elderly patients comfort and feelings while they are using these brain teasers for seniors and dementia patients. And, for everyone to enjoy the activity and interaction.

“I have recently had the pleasure of seeing the Memory Jogging Puzzles. Karen Miller has created these Norman Rockwell – Saturday Evening Post inspired puzzles for Dementia’s Disease patients to enjoy, while exercising their brain, what a great idea!.
These puzzles are beautifully crafted. Each one could serve as coffee-table décor, but they are highly functional pieces that not only entertain but serve the greater purpose of helping memory challenged adults with maintaining memory.
I am planning to order a few of the puzzles for our patients in the Rush Memory Clinic to enjoy while in our waiting area.”

In a number of studies that looked at the effect of memory training on memory performance, improvements in memory performance have been reported.
