Dementia Puzzles

That feeling of satisfaction once you place the final piece into a jigsaw is one you probably recognise. Lots of people will have made a jigsaw at some point in their life. In fact, they can be a really useful activity for someone with dementia. Sorting through the pieces and putting them together can be relaxing, while chatting about the emerging picture is a great way for you to make a connection with the person with dementia.

However, it’s also worth remembering that as dementia develops, it can be harder to complete the 50, 100 or 200 piece jigsaws. The number, size and shape of pieces can make it overwhelming and fiddly to put together. Jigsaws with smaller numbers of pieces are common, but they’re often designed for children, and that can be demeaning for an adult.

Luckily, we stock a fantastic range of jigsaws that have age-appropriate images that can trigger happy memories and conversation, have easy-to-hold pieces, and which are designed to be put together by someone with dementia.

Our jigsaws come in 13, 24 and 35 pieces, and have their own backing board with frame, making it easier to work out which pieces go where. The puzzles are wipe clean and made from durable plastic so they’ll last longer.

James' Quote

“One of the reasons I founded Unforgettable was because of the problem we had keeping Mum entertained. She really enjoyed jigsaws; however, it was frustrating to discover that simpler jigsaws were only designed for children. So I’m delighted to have found jigsaws specifically designed for people with dementia.”

Brilliant

My mum really enjoys them! Chose the puzzles for particular reasons and they really work well. My sister visits my mum 4 times a week and says that the frame really helps mum to use the puzzle.

Great

Bought for my mother, great find after previously seeing her use puzzles meant for children which is not appropriate for her - the beach scene reminded her of where we used to have a caravan which was great for reminiscing. Have already recommend to my sisters!
