Approximately 5.3 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease, roughly one in eight Americans over the age of 65. It is a progressive and deadly form of dementia that is not part of the natural aging process and it is on the rise. Currently brain research shows that activities like doing jigsaw puzzles exercise the brain and can help slow the progression of Alzheimer's Disease, currently the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. Traditional jigsaw puzzles, however, often prove too frustrating for advanced Alzheimer's patients to manipulate and solve. Springbok's Puzzles to Remember have only 36 giant pieces, that are much easier for Alzheimer's patients to manipulate. Plus, the carefully chosen themes provide gentle stimulation, positive reinforcement and opportunity for success. Puzzles exercise multiple areas of the brain. Cheerful and nostalgic themes provide many hours of enjoyment.
Puzzles measure approximately 18 in x 23.5 in
