Puzzle Me This

Puzzles are fun for all ages, but sometimes senior citizens need a little more encouragement because of memory loss or energy issues. Each person solves these riddles at their own pace, and Nasco’s Senior Activities catalog covers these bases with puzzles that appeal to older generations.

Seasons of the year become simple with MindStart® 24-Piece Seasonal Puzzles. Check out Autumn (SN32425C), Winter (SN32426C), Spring (SN32427C), and Summer (SN32428C). These puzzles are easy to do, yet adult-oriented, providing cognitive stimulation. MindStart® also offers puzzle sets with bold colors and little detail that work well with middle dementia and low vision participants. Try Set 1 Puzzles (SN32518C) that include Candy, Ice Cream, Flowers, and Sports; or Set 2 Puzzles (SN32517C) that include Fishing, Baking, Baseball, and Gardening.

Nothing stirs the heart and attention more than images from the past. Whether nostalgia for the farm or for the way things “used to be,” Nasco carries puzzles to keep your patients, family members, or yourself busy.
