If the person with dementia can successfully complete standard crossword puzzles, that's the best answer and you should encourage them to continue doing them. If, however, they have given up or If they start having trouble or getting frustrated, our unique Sequenced Crosswords can help.

Our puzzles use a smaller 9 x 9 grid with word length limited to 3, 4 or 5 characters, but that's just the beginning. Rather than simply providing a list of "across" and "down" clues, our Sequenced Crossword Puzzle offers several different guides and cueing devices to help the person be successful no matter what their skills and abilities. The package includes three different ways to present the clues:

  • a regular across and down list
  • a list of the clues in a suggested order that gives the person the most guidance
  • clue cards for individual words that can be used one at a time

In addition, the package includes a list of the answers sorted by word length and a list of two possible answers for each clue. These can be used to further guide the person to success. The instructions describe in detail how to present the crossword successfully.

See the look of joy as the puzzle lover regains that feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment at completing the puzzle successfully.

Packages of two additional puzzles that work with the same Sequenced Crossword grid can be purchased to add even more variety to your activity.
