Puzzle Time Program at UCLA

There is an incredible movement: The Youth Movement Against Alzheimer's Disease Here is the link: Youth Movement Against Alzheimer's Disease founded by Nihal Satyadev. This young man is tireless. We have no doubt that his actions will have a tremendous positive impact for the Alzheimer's community and the family members who love them!  The Youth Movement Against Alzheimer's Disease is a high school and college Alzheimer's disease advocacy group. He wants to empower youth. WE are the voice of the future. Nihal and his group have advocated for the pilot Care Corp in California. (This program needs to be in every state!) The Care Corp provides respite care (from UCLA students) for Alzheimer's caregivers.  The funding for Care Corp helps caregivers return to the workforce and reduces the financial burden of caregiving.
We are glad that we could provide specialized Alzheimer's jigsaw puzzles to the UCLA students, and training for our Puzzle Time Program.  The UCLA students are solving jigsaw puzzles with patients in the dementia community We are so happy we have reached college students and our program will provide many Alzheimer's sufferers a sense of accomplishment!
