They are challenging, but simplified in that no words run right to left, diagonally or bottom to top. The words are familiar and the letters are large and easy to read. There are three levels of difficulty allowing you to find the puzzles that the person can do on their own, changing the level as the person’s abilities change. The included instructions describe ways to help people complete the puzzles on their own if they are having difficulties. Because the puzzles are laminated, they can be wiped clean and re-used.

Check out our blog post "Success with Word Search" for more information and downloadable sample puzzles.

Package Includes: Eight puzzles at each of three levels of difficulty (24 puzzles in total), along with a wet erase marker. Each page is laminated so that the solution can be erased and the puzzle re-used. Your choice of topics - in each book there are six puzzles for each topic (2 at each level).

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

Bought this for my grandmother who has dementia and no longer enjoys the activities she previously did. She was able to do these on her own. Very sturdy cards, love how it’s reusable! (Posted on 12/4/2017)

I wasn't sure about buying things online, but I felt that these products wouldn't hurt.
My mom (who is with my dad 24/7) and dad both use this word search together, to get my dad into it. It keeps him busy at least and he doesn't become super anxious. Very pleased with this (Posted on 10/25/2016)

Highly recommended...Review by L.H.

This is great for someone having memory/cognitive function problems like many forms of dementia. The puzzles are easy enough for someone with early onset dementia to do and there are different levels so that you can move on to harder puzzles once the easiest one are mastered. They are reusable. Uses a washable dry erase pen that comes with it or can be purchased anywhere when you need a new one. Washes off with a wet paper towel & a little soap. Dry it & start over again. It's very good quality. Not junk at all. Comes with tips on how to use it for someone with dementia. I'm glad I bought it. I can gladly recommend it to others. (Posted on 7/28/2016)
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat idea, unique productReview by Anna

I bought these for my 90 year old mother who has dementia and sits around all day. These word searches are wonderful because
1) they have a large font
2) the plastic is sturdy and secure to grasp 3) you can easily wipe them down with a wet paper towel and start all over the next day
4) there are three levels of difficulty because it's hard to predict which level you will need.
5) people get a sense of satisfaction completing them
6) As the dementia progresses, you can drop down to easier levels.

I am thankful for the person that developed and made these puzzles because they obviously care about those struggling with dementia and understand the importance of keeping their minds stimulated.

I intend to order more items from this company. Oh, and they sent along a hand signed note for that personal touch. (Posted on 7/22/2016)

Mom loves it. It is one of the few things she is still able to do as her dementia progresses and the ability to enjoy a book or crochet is gone. (Posted on 6/30/2016)

Perfect for my 83-year old mother. Review by H. Morris

Perfect for my 83-year old mother. She can see the letters clearly and the progression of difficulty from easy to difficult was good for her. I like that we are able to erase and repeat the searches over and over as she has dementia and does not recall having done them, so instead of trying to find puzzles she is able to complete, we save time and money!

Super Puzzles!Review by Carmelle Quinnon
Person enjoyed activity
Easy to use
Would recommend
These are wonderful! They came in a lovely well-organized file folder, beautifully laminated and very clean and easy-to-see for my father. There are 3 levels, so my father who is farther along in his Alzheimers does the level 1, while my mother, who progressed through the level 1 quickly to build her confidence, is now working in level 2. They really love them and expect me to do them with them whenever I visit. These puzzles are the only ones I've been able to find that don't have any words going backwards or on the diagonal. They wipe off so easily so they can do them over and over. I know I will use these for years to come, even with my younger students just getting started with Word Searches. I'm very impressed with this company!

My Mom takes out her activities all the time, but I suspect it is primarily for the word searches. I know she really LOVES completing them all with ease and being able to redo them. (Posted on 3/2/2015)
