Large print, honeycomb-bound word search puzzle book. 30 puzzles featuring 12 hidden words all oriented horizontally. Designed for use by early, mid-, and late-stage Alzheimer’s patients. Simplicity allows early stage patients to continue to work independently. Mid-stage patients can have success as they search for one word per line. Great for late stage Alzheimer’s patients as a one-to-one activity with their caregiver. Puzzles are also designed to promote reminiscing. Puzzles have been well tested in an Alzheimer’s unit. They are intended to be copied within one facility only. Use for many hours of fun and cognitive stimulation.
I used pages from this book over and over with memory care residents on an Alzheimerâs unit. Some residents could complete four pages while waiting for their meal to arrive , while others with less cognitive ability may only complete one page. This book was also very useful for one to one activity with late stage dementia residents. One can point to a line and ask can you see a word hidden here, the name of a flower. When resident spots the word explain to them to circle it or underline depending on their capabilities. This provides fun and a sense of accomplishment for the late stage resident. I would recommend this book for use in a facility or at home with a family member at home struggling with memory loss.:
