People with dementia may be confused with traditional jigsaw puzzles that have many pieces and detailed images, with pieces that all look similar. MindStart puzzles are unique because the images have only a
few, simple objects in each image, making it easier for the person to find
pieces that go together. Because of this design feature, along with having less
puzzle pieces, patients with dementia have the right level of
mental stimulation and success.
