The puzzle is a brightly coloured 35 piece tray puzzle with pieces large and thick enough to be easy to handle but not so large that they don't look like jigsaw pieces. The pieces fit together in a tray that has a grey image of the puzzle printed on it and each piece outlined to show its placement, but the real magic is in the colour sequencing.

The puzzle pieces come pre-sorted into groups according to their placement on the puzzle – top, side, bottom, etc. Each group of pieces is presented to the person individually. By following the coloured clues on the tray and the sequence of steps in the instructions, the person is guided to successfully place the pieces without help. This is repeated for each group until the puzzle is complete. Because the person is generally able to select and place the pieces on their own, they have a great feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment (often accompanied by a big smile).

As the person becomes more proficient, more than one group can be presented at once, making the activity more challenging.

Included in the package is a laminated sheet showing the finished puzzle in full colour to use as a guide. Not only are these puzzles colourful and fun to do, they are great conversation starters when selected to match the interests of the person. Because no extra information is required, this puzzle does not include a laminated key guide.

Package Includes: 35 piece sequenced tray puzzle measuring 14" x 10", laminated full colour picture showing completed puzzle and full instructions conveniently packaged in a zippered envelope.

Suitable For: A great activity for people with dementia or Alzheimer's who always liked jigsaw puzzles but now find standard puzzles too challenging. Also great for people with more abilities looking for a new and fun pastime.

Excellent puzzle for my Mom who has dementia. It really forces her to concentrate on fitting the pieces together and that is very good mental exercise for her brain! (Posted on 2/6/2017)

When they first arrived I wasn't sure about the packaging, but when I opened it up I LOVED it! It's perfect for someone with memory issues the way the pieces were color coded and bagged in smaller groups. Doing 6 pieces at a time will be way less confusing than dumping all pieces on the table. The board that is used to put it together on is also color coded. What a very well thought out product. (Posted on 5/12/2016)

Great activity to help pass the time and maintain skills - coordination, problem solving skills, etc. We're not yet at the point where we need colour coded pieces, but I can see how that will help later on. I have helped 5 different peoplr assemble this puzzle and none of them "get" the grey background image. They seem to either not see it at all, or be confused by it. In our case, requires someone to set up, motivate, etc, which is not always possible, but this has helped start the conversation at the nursing home. Those residents I have worked with enjoy the activity. (Posted on 4/18/2016)
It's nice but not quite what I was looking forReview by A. Barton

I can see how this would be a great puzzle for someone with dementia and going downhill. I was looking for more of the style that Springbok makes. My husband has a traumatic brain injury and I use these puzzles as therapy. I don't like that this puzzle has the background board to put the puzzle pieces on. It's too easy for him. It is a beautiful high quality puzzle, I just don't think it was described well. It's more like a toddler puzzle and I was hoping for more of a grown up style puzzle, but with larger pieces and fewer pieces. (Posted on 10/27/2015)

This puzzle challenged my husband more than the others, but he managed to complete it with minimal help. Again, the sequencing of the puzzle was the reason he was able to complete it. (Posted on 9/3/2015)

My husband always enjoyed doing jigsaw puzzles but became frustrated. These puzzles have him back at it.

By using the sequencing and following the steps in the instructions, he's able to complete the puzzle and have fun doing it. We bought three different puzzles and love them. Thanks! (Posted on 6/15/2015)
