PuzzleTime is a program begun by PuzzlesToRemember and KidCaregivers. In addition to supplying a dementia facility with donated Springbok PuzzlesToRemember, teens are paired up with each facility. Usually monthly or bimonthly, these teens visit dementia facilities, bringing these puzzles with them. They spend a few hours at the facility, interacting with the residents and helping them do the puzzles. The students receive community service credits for their efforts.
Both the students and the residents find the experience to be very rewarding, and both groups always look forward to the next session. Below is a photo of a group of students showing up for PuzzleTime at Azalea Gardens, a dementia care facility in Tallahassee Florida.
