Details

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.

This is a great puzzle for anyone suffering from dementia. The pieces are a good size and the picture of the puzzle is on inside to assist in placing the pieces correctly. It also is divided by colors on the inside with the correlating pieces the same color dots on back and in separate bags. (Posted on 6/23/2017)

I have only done the puzzle once with dad so far but he was interested and caught on quickly. The color coded pieces really help, if all of the pieces were just in a big heap there is no way he could have figured out where they all went. Good job! Will probably purchase several more.
