We are delighted to work in partnership with Alzheimer’s Society, who provide vital support to people affected by dementia.
The benefits of puzzles
Puzzles and mental wellbeing go hand in hand, providing social engagement and a source of fun for those affected by dementia. Not only can sharing puzzles be a way for people with dementia to feel connected to friends and family, but they also can bring back positive and enjoyable memories.
This 15-21 May marks Dementia Action Week. Alzheimer’s Society are encouraging people to ‘act on dementia’ by seeking further help if they are concerned that they or someone they know may be experiencing dementia symptoms.
Puzzles can also have a positive effect on people who do not have dementia. They can relieve stress and promote mental fitness. We’ve put together a free downloadable pack of puzzles where you can experience these benefits for yourself. Click here 👇
Since 2020, we have created the ASDA magazine Brain Boost together, as well as a pack called Brain Workout for the charity’s supporters.
Delivered directly to your door every month, discover a selection ranging from classic crosswords to number conundrums and picture puzzles. Plus, it features a variety of different difficulty levels to choose from. It’s a fun and stimulating way to keep your brain active, all while helping to fund Alzheimer's Society’s fundamental work.
If you’re interested in signing up for Brain Workout, you’ll find all the information you’ll need here.
Taking the next step: Trek26
On June 3, we will be swapping puzzle pages for pavement paces and taking on a 13 mile hike through London as part of Alzheimer’s Society’s Trek26 campaign.
We are very excited to take part in this opportunity to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Society’s essential research (justgiving.com/bauer-puzzles). If you want to tackle your own trek in one of 8 breathtaking UK locations head to their website.
It is a privilege to partner with Alzheimer’s Society. We look forward to more potential projects in the future – watch this space!
