This puzzle features a small number of puzzle pieces, an age appropriate image, and large pieces which are easy to handle. Puzzles are 8.25" X 11" when completed and is made of a thick, durable chipboard.. Consider for MindStart high activity level.

People with dementia have difficulty with traditional puzzles that have many pieces and detailed images, as the pieces look too much the same.  MindStart puzzles are unique because the images have simple objects in each image with contrasting colors, making it easier for the person to find pieces that go together.  This design feature, along with having less puzzle pieces, allow people with dementia to have the right level of cognitive stimulation and success.

"Large piece puzzles give cognitive stimulation to people with dementia"

Therapist Tip: Stimulation of the brain occurs when setting jigsaw puzzles as the patient uses visual skills, the skills of problem solving and matching, and coordination of the fingers.  The image on the puzzle can also trigger memories and reminiscence.  MindStart puzzle products are a  form of cognitive stimulation therapy for adults with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia and also head injury, stroke, Parkinson's, or frail elderly who tire easily. Also, the large size of the puzzle pieces help seniors with vision loss, as they can easily see and handle the pieces.  The Summer puzzle can stimulate conversation about things to do in the summer, places to visit, and favorite summer foods.

Spring and Summer Puzzles
My mother loved them! She received them and put them both together right away! This made her - and us - very happy as she felt her memory symptoms were not as bad if she can still build puzzles. The pieces are ideal as she has visual loss and a little fine motor control difficulty. In fact, she has asked for more!

As always, the quality of this item is perfect. I have used all of the 12 piece puzzles offered by Mind Start and thought it time I attempted a larger piece puzzle for my dementia folks. Great results and much joy the day one of my more advanced ladies put this puzzle together!
