Puzzles & Quizzes
Jigsaw puzzles are a fun cognitive task, but they’re not always easy with dementia. Our 13 Piece Jigsaws are designed for people who have loved jigsaw puzzles in the past, but now find 24 pieces a struggle.
The large, irregular shaped pieces, along with the background guide, give people plenty of support, so they can work as independently as possible. This in turn creates a greater sense of achievement on completion.
The lovely images can then lead onto a reminiscence activity, either using the questions inside the box or making up ones of your own.
Some of the puzzle themes can lead nicely onto another activity. For example, if someone loved the In the Kitchen Puzzle because it brought back memories of cooking with mum, why not bake some fairy cakes afterwards to reminisce some more?
We have collated a great bank of activity ideas to suit any stage, season or mindset. And there is more; sign up for access to our extended list and be the first to hear of our newest ideas.
