Benefits on the Brain
Studies have shown that by stimulating the brain with puzzles, activities, or games, you can help reduce the symptoms of dementia.
Dementia Jigsaw Puzzles can also increase motor neuron activity, and regular solving of puzzles (or playing of games) could even help with daily tasks such as getting dressed.
All of our Dementia Jigsaw Puzzles are accompanied by a conversation card which features questions and keywords on the respective theme, helping to encourage conversation, reminiscence and discussion.
Stimulating conversation between people with dementia, and carers, can sometimes be a problem.
Dementia Jigsaw Puzzles can help bridge that gap, whether it's in a 1 on 1 environment in your own home, or as a group activity in a care home.
