Kid Caregivers is a 501c3 nonprofit organization which supports and empowers children who are acting as caregivers. Our mission is to help young people cope and to enliven the lives of adults living with Alzheimer's disease. We offer intergenerational Puzzle Time programs and training to enhance eldercare globally. We encourage young people to use their skills to benefit the dementia community.
Here are pictures from the Puzzle Time Program. Kids and seniors make a great time! The puzzles we used in these pictures are Springbok PuzzlesToRemember Puzzles; they are a perfect choice for people with moderate to severe dementia. They have 36 pieces, and adult themes, which bring back memories. If your loved one is in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease they can solve up to 100 pieces, or more. Please enjoy these pictures from our latest session in NYC at the 80th Street Residence!
We are expanding the program to Oregon, Florida, Massachusetts, Brazil and South Africa! If you would like to have a Puzzle Time Program chapter in your state, or country please contact me at Kidcaregivers@gmail.com. I will help you set it up!
