Puzzles for memory loss or dementia

We have a lovely range of puzzles specifically designed  by an occupational therapist for people with memory loss or dementia, who need an easier puzzle with fewer, large size pieces.  The images on the puzzles are designed exclusively so they have less detail and are based on themes of everyday life, so they spark memories and conversation.  The puzzles help individuals with dementia to stay cognitively active.  They have 12, 24 or 63 pieces.   See teh full range here
Baking 24 pieces
