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.

Great product for those struggling with memory loss!Review by H.G.

I have purchased three of these to work with my mother who is somewhere in the late middle to advanced stages of dementia. The puzzle pieces each have a small colored sticker on the back that matches a colored portion of the mat in which you piece the puzzle together. The directions tell you a sequence of when to give each bag of five or six pieces. When I first got one of these puzzles, I gave her ALL of the pieces (35) thinking it would be too easy otherwise. My mom needed a lot of help to be able to complete the puzzle. Tried again on the next puzzle (a different day) & actually followed the directions, giving her only one bag at a time. This worked much better. A great way to enjoy time together with her & stimulate her cognitively without frustrating her. Highly recommend!

The sequenced puzzles really help not to overwhelm the mind of my 102 year old mother. When our caregiver sets these up for her, she feels accomplished. It's great and the pictures are so pretty!!! (Posted on 3/21/2018)

Just built it yesterday. The pieces are very well made, large and firm, and the colours brilliant. Very easy for elderly person to see and to handle. We talked about all the items in the picture after building it. Really held the patient's interest. (Posted on 12/30/2017)

Have purchased several of these puzzles for my husband. They are challenging for him, which is good. But never so hard that he would be discouraged. Love these! (Posted on 8/26/2017)
