Boston Strong - Teen Improves Lives of Persons Living with Alzheimer's

In this week's Boston Strong, a teenager on a mission to find a treatment for Alzheimer's and improve the quality of lives for those afflicted.

Max Wallack found one surprising way to help -- puzzles


PUZZLES TO REMEMBER is a 501(c)3 organization that provides puzzles to nursing homes, veterans facilities, and other facilities that care for Alzheimer's and dementia patients. Puzzles To Remember was founded in 2008 by Max Wallack, now a student at Boston University in Massachusetts. Max recognized the calming effect of puzzles and many other benefits on people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

If you have puzzles that you would like to donate, please contact PTR at PuzzlesToRemember@gmail.com.

We can also provide you with a donation letter so that you can claim the value of your puzzles as a tax deduction.
