Barn is a 63 piece Large Format jigsaw puzzle. This classic scene is perfect for those who can no longer finish puzzles with 100 or more pieces. Each piece measures 1 1/4" x 1 3/4", and the completed piece puzzle measures 11.5" x 16.25".

For dementia patients, jigsaw puzzles with many pieces and detailed images are too difficult. MindStart puzzles, designed by an occupational therapist, are unique because the images have only a few, simple objects in each image, making it easier for the user to find pieces that go together. This design feature, along with having fewer puzzle pieces and images from adult life, allows the person with dementia to have the right level of mental stimulation and dignified success. Also, the large size of the puzzle pieces helps seniors with vision loss to easily see and handle the pieces. A research study showed that patients with dementia were able to set the MindStart puzzles more independently, with less cues needed, when compared to a child’s puzzle of the same size. This gives the person a sense of accomplishment and gives caregivers respite time.

Wonderful puzzle for my father who is in a nursing home and has dementia. This barn looks so much like his and it brought back many memories for him.

I purchased for a rehab gym. I was able to find large pieces, small amounts of pieces and the pieces are sturdy. Pictures are adult pictures, which our patients are. We couldn’t find puzzles like this anywhere. We were very pleased with them.

I bought this one for my husband in the nursing home and we worked on it together. He enjoyed it a lot and could help put it together
