According to Dementia Australia, there are currently 425,416 Australians currently living with dementia.
Along with a formal program of lifestyle activities it is said that completing puzzles provides a sense of pride and accomplishment and can increase feelings of well-being and a better quality of life, including communication and interaction with those around them.
Doing a Jigsaw can have a meditative and therapeutic effect on the brain, helping to calm someone with dementia and help them to feel content.
Memory Jogging puzzles can help to rebuild cognitive skills and stimulate memories in seniors with dementia and Alzheimer's and also stroke victims.
We have created a range of memory jogging puzzles specifically designed to assist in recreating memories by providing "familiar" images. Each puzzle is printed on 3mm thick white pvc which will allow the puzzles to be wiped clean when necessary without destroying the images.
Puzzles are A4 in size and cut into 12 very large pieces for easy handling and recognition. If you prefer puzzles a little more challenging this range is also available in a 30 piece cut.
Puzzles are sold in bundles of 10. The cost of each bundle is $120.00 which includes GST and delivery, Australia Wide. Three current bundles (sets 1, 2 & 3) are available on the order page.
