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.
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. For specific choices, make your selection from the puzzles below, and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0411482584
We have been asked to create additional puzzles for general use in Aged Care Facilities. So we have created a range of A3 size which can be enjoyed by residents either individually or in pairs. Puzzles provide great interaction and still be a challenge and yet be suitable for use in a shared facility. These puzzles are sold in sets of 6 and are screenprinted onto A3 size 2mm PVC and cut into 96 pieces. Pieces average approximately 4 cm by 5 cm and so are easy to pickup and identify. The PVC allows the puzzles to be wiped clean after each use. The puzzles are shown below under the A3 section.
