Testimonial

~I discovered early on in the Alzheimer’s journey with my dad that doing simple jigsaw puzzles provided him such a sense of self-esteem.

However it was almost impossible to find puzzles commercially that weren’t too childish.

Your puzzles have just the right number of pieces that he can handle without frustration, and the Rockwell themes are all so lovely.

I am one satisfied customer. Thanks again! Tanis M, Canada ###

Are you wondering if your loved one in middle stage Alzheimer Disease could work with these puzzles. Take a peek… Mary has Dementia and interesting technique

Did you know Old Habits may be restored in Alzheimer and dementia patients?

For many dementia patients, it has been along time since they have had the opportunity to work on a jigsaw puzzle and you can see the happiness in their eyes. Be careful, this happiness can turn to tears and frustration very quickly.

In a glance, dementia and stroke patients size up a jigsaw puzzle.

If in their mind the puzzle “looks” too difficult, at that very moment fear and intimidation will begin.

If the picture does not capture their attention, they are not interested.

At that very moment elderly with dementia and stroke patients may decide not to cooperate or participate in putting jigsaw puzzle together.

It isn’t because they are being stubborn or uncooperative.

#1 reason, elderly do not want to fail or feel embarrassed.

When dementia activities appear too difficult

Some individuals recall right away what to do with a jigsaw puzzle, while others need a little guidance and more time. It is important to start with a puzzle you feel your loved one can easily handle and introduce a puzzle with more pieces after they can successfully handle the first one.

Check out the number of pieces & thickness of the pieces. Keep in mind thin cardboard pieces are difficult for elderly patients to pick up.

• What are the dimensions of completed jigsaw puzzle? If the puzzle is large and your loved one has limited mobility, reaching for the pieces may be difficult and then finding the right spot is another issue.

When working on jigsaw puzzles, it should be completed before activity time is over. End on a happy note.

I know many elderly work on 500 – 1000 piece puzzles which take a longer period of time to complete. My mother was one of the people until she was disabled, then these puzzles were frustrating and depressing for her because she could no longer do them, everything was difficult.
