Jigsaws provide a very relaxing experience, and are enjoyed as a pastime by many people around the world. They’re great for people with restricted movement, creating a sense of purpose and a real feeling of accomplishment once they’re finished. However, people living with dementia often find traditional, more complex puzzles too difficult to complete, and many easier jigsaws are aimed specifically at children.
Active Minds’ jigsaws have been specifically designed for people living with dementia. The pieces are extra large to help with identifying placement. This puzzle uses only 63 pieces for people that find puzzles with more pieces too much of a challenge. They use gorgeous, age appropriate images that can be used to stimulate conversation and encourage communication. It’s a therapeutic experience for anyone feeling agitated, and an enjoyable social experience when completed with loved ones.

I was looking for a jigsaw with larger pieces for my grandma as she has limited mobility in her fingers due to arthritis. This is the perfect product. My gran loves it and also loves that you can build it in the box. I’ll be buying more for her.
Bought this for my 92 year old mum with some dementia. She loved the pretty picture and her shaky hands coped with the large and solid pieces.
On arrival the puzzle pieces need carefully and firmly breaking up to begin. Under light supervision mum found the edge pieces and proceeded. In our case guidance was needed throughout but many wouldn’t need this. Thoroughly recommend the quality and being able to partly make then set aside as and when in its box safely.
This is the second of two that I bought. Excellent for my elderly relative who has Alzheimer’s. It’s important to resist the temptation to jump in and help! It took her quite a while but she was thrilled to manage it in the end.
