Days Out - 12 Pieces- Dementia Friendly Puzzle
by Gibsons

The Piecing Together Collection was created to provide those living with dementia, limited fine motor skills or visual impairments with a fun activity that can be enjoyed alone or with a loved one. 850,000 people are estimated to be living with dementia in the UK, a disease that can be isolating for both the sufferer and their family members, friends or carers.  

Gibsons goal was to create a puzzle that can bring people together during these difficult times. So we undertook thorough research and development when designing this collection, which included care home visits, liaising with Age UK Centres and teaming up with Dr. Zoe Wryko, Consultant Geriatrician and member of the expert team on Channel 4's award winning TV show, Old People's Home for 4 Year Olds.   

The puzzle images were chosen specifically to evoke fond memories from years gone by to spark conversations with loved ones and reminisce around topics that may be long forgotten. 'Days Out' is a montage puzzle made up of images from the Mary Evans Picture Library and illustrations by students from The Reigate School of Art in Surrey.  

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, they use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and commission the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together, in fact, they use the thickest puzzle board on the market.

Gibson's have made some positive changes to their processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but they have used recyclable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing plastic waste. They use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.

Because the box is slightly smaller than previous designs, less room is needed to transport the puzzles, which reduces the carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. There is also an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.

With over 250 Gibsons jigsaws available here, at The Yorkshire Jigsaw Store, there is plenty to choose from. From the large piece puzzles to the most popular 1000 piece puzzles there is a jigsaw for everyone. The gift box range of 500 piece puzzles offers the perfect present.

Gibsons have created ‘The Piecing Together’ puzzle collection. This range of puzzles has been specifically created for those living with dementia, limited fine motor skills or visual impairment allowing them to enjoy the wonderful pastime either alone or with loved ones.

Founded in 1919, Gibson’s have been entertaining generations for over a century and are proud to have such a rich British heritage. From day one the company has been devoted to providing fun family pastimes for all ages. They now have over 250 titles in their jigsaw collection.

Gibsons jigsaw puzzles are loved by many, with fans including the England Rugby team, singer Anne- Marie and Her Majesty the Queen herself!
