Comforting memory loss support activities that entertain, educate and encourage dementia patients.
You will find these memory loss support activities make the care of people with Alzheimer’s, dementia and elderly with special needs more meaningful and beneficial.
Our wooden puzzles are large piece puzzles with fewer pieces and thick pieces for easy handling. These features remove fear, frustration and intimidation.
Remember: It is not about how big or how quickly the task is completed, it is completing the task in their time.
Memory Jogging Puzzles have been proven to rebuild cognitive skills, awaken memories, emotions and stimulate conversation.
Memory Jogging Puzzles have storytelling themes from the Saturday Evening Post featuring Norman Rockwell and Sarah Stilwell Weber, whose wonderful illustrations immediately capture the attention of elderly and dementia patients and have an emotional connection.
Memory Loss Support Activities for dementia patients
The Saturday Evening Post was a very popular magazine in your loved ones era and still available today. Memory Jogging Puzzles themes are replicas of the actual covers from The Saturday Evening Post Collection, and it is amazing how elderly patients recall the Post and Norman Rockwell.
Is it true any puzzle will do?
Have you heard people say a puzzle is a puzzle; any jigsaw puzzle will do, if your loved one has dementia.
Trust me, if your loved one has dementia or is in stroke treatment, just any jigsaw puzzle “will not do”. Just the opposite is true!
When puzzles are not designed specifically for memory loss and stroke patients with limited mobility they cause fear, frustration, intimidation and feelings of failure. You will not see participation, smiles and feelings of success.
This makes me happy!
I am a RN retired most recent 15 years were in home health and hospice. My husband has MS and memory loss dementia. He’s also now recovering from a brain tumor. These puzzles are the first thing he’s been interested in I am so thankful he was able to do the 20 piece ballpark picture with a three Empires it took him about half an hour but he stayed interested, thanks ~Dorene
If you want a positive reaction use a puzzle which has been designed specifically for dementia and stroke patients.
Break down walls of silence and connect with your loved one.
Like frosting on a cake, The Saturday Evening Post themes and Famous People from the 60s are the frosting on Memory Jogging Puzzles.
The cake is edible without the frosting, but watch the eyes light up with the frosting.
It just makes the cake a more enjoyable experience; you will see the same reaction with these large piece puzzles.
