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!
We are in all 50 states!

With winter at our doorsteps, it's great to have a few thoughts for family exercises that are reasonable, discussion cordial, and indoor-arranged yet not so isolated as having everybody lounging around the love seat or on the web. wood puzzle for babyReplyDelete
