24-piece Fishing Puzzle

Your Price: $12.99
Part Number:FISHING
This puzzle  has fewer pieces, an adult-oriented image, and large pieces which are easy to handle. Puzzles are 8.25" X 11" when completed and are made of a thick, durable chipboard. Consider for MindStart high activity level.

Traditional puzzles have many pieces and detailed images.  All the pieces look the same, making them too difficult and frustrating for patients with dementia.  MindStart puzzle products are unique because the images have only a few, simple objects in each image, making it easier for the user to find pieces that go together.  For instance in the Fishing puzzle, the green tackle boxl pieces stand out different from the orange fishing lure pieces . This design feature, along with having less puzzle pieces, provides the right amount of difficulty and cognitive stimulation for adults with dementia.

Large piece jigsaw puzzles provide cognitive stimulation for dementia and weakened elderly

Therapist Tip: Setting jigsaw puzzles provides cognitive stimulation to patients, such as: visualizing and determining how the pieces should be oriented and fit together (visual-spatial skills); matching of colors; dexterity of the fingers; and concentration. The puzzle image can also spark memories and conversation.  MindStart puzzles are a form of therapy for people with memory loss due to Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia, head injury, Parkinson's, stroke, or frail elderly who tire easily; large piece puzzles are also useful for seniors with vision loss.  The Sports puzzle can stimulate conversation about favorite sports, favorite teams, and famous players.

My husband has dementia and enjoys putting this puzzle and the other two puzzles I got for him, baseball and summer time. I like that they have subjects that he can relate to, not something for a preschooler.
