My mom was recently diagnosed with dementia. Unfortunately, she fell a broke her hip last week. While Iwas meeting with the hospital's physical therapist, she suggested that I get mom a sensory blanket. I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner?! This mat has been the perfect distraction for mom.She's no longermessing with her blankets or her IV and it has helped her calm down and relax.


I bought this to put on the window outside my dad's room in his memory care facility. his window faces to a courtyard in the middle of the facility with a few trees. I cleaned a small patch of the glass and stuck thisto the window and it is holding great.


This is a nice puzzle. The box to store and put it together in is a great idea. There is a book that is included with bright colorful pictures of birds, what a bonus! The pieces are large, thick, and put together very nicely. I recommend this puzzle.


Mom has Alzheimer's and she loved it. Got to see her thought process in action again as she recalledstrategy: start with edges. Was proud of herself when she completed it on her own. It was calming and allowed her to focus for a while. She found the final picture very pretty.


My elderly mother with dementia loves working puzzles like this one. The pieces are large and firm which helps her handle them with her arthitis. Working the puzzle in the box frame is a huge plus. It helps her to figure out the edge pieces. She loves the beach, so this particular puzzle is her favorite. It's been worth the price of the puzzle for the hours of joy and contentment she has working it over (and over) again.
