Puzzle Time Program

 Kid Caregivers Puzzle Time Program is in several states!
We are constantly expanding!  OUR GOAL - A Puzzle Time chapter in every state and US Territory!

There is a lot of hard evidence that solving jigsaw puzzles is a beneficial activity for cognitive stimulation.

Here is how our intergenerational Puzzle Time Program works:

1) We recruit a group of student volunteers: middle school, high school, college.

2) We locate a memory care facility,  nursing home, retirement community

3) Each student is paired with an Alzheimer's patient, to jointly solve a highly specialized Alzheimer's jigsaw puzzle.

4) The dementia patients are thrilled, and the students receive community service credit for the civic engagement. (Community service is often a requirement for graduation. Solving puzzles with a "pal" is a fun and rewarding way to earn credit, and benefit the lives of Alzheimer's patients!)

Kid Caregivers is a certifying organization for the Points of Light Presidential Volunteer Service Award  click here to learn more: Presidential Volunteer Service Award
We appreciate our volunteers and believe that they should receive the highest National honors for their service work!
