PERFECT GIFT FOR SENIORS, ELDERLY & PARKINSON'S PATIENTS #1 Best Seller puzzle book for Parkinson's patients to recover & maintain the brain functions. Customer: "Great gift for my mom " Word puzzles are recommended for patients by doctors, speech & cognitive therapists to rebuild & maintain mental abilities. Puzzles are essential for brain rehabilitation. Doctors always recommend puzzle solving for Parkinson's patients to keep the brain functioning. The puzzle book also boasts a number of traffic sign coloring pages to maintain fine motor skills & hand writing. The Diagonal Word Square Puzzles are arranged in increasing difficulty levels. The puzzle solver has to find the missing letters for short words; each row and the diagonal will spell a word. Puzzles are valuable rehab tools in the hands of people who experience the cognitive and physical deficits frequently associated with stroke and other neurological disorders. Inability to pay attention is common for Parkinson's patients. Other deficits may include comprehension, reading, and writing. The human brain is extremely flexible and it can be rewired for full functioning in the early stages of Parkinson's. To learn how to pay better attention, Parkinson's patients can solve puzzles that require focus. Others skills targeted by puzzle solving (which may improve comprehension, reading, and writing) include speech, concentration, memory, word-finding, and motor skills. When puzzles are used for Parkinson's patients, the key is to choose a puzzle that is effective and enjoyable for the patient. The puzzles in this book are effective because they can be completed easily and in short amount of time, usually in a single sitting. Because they are not difficult, solving them imparts a sense of accomplishment. Puzzle contents stimulate emotions and memories, conversation and reminiscing. Puzzles are a great brain exercise and memory activity that captures and improves attention. Puzzles encourage the use of problem solving skills. In addition, they are fun; patients relax, smile, and laugh. The truth is, there is no real limit on the benefit we can derive from brain puzzles. They have been used throughout history for recreation, as medicine, as meditation, as a source of beauty. While this book is aimed directly at Parkinson's patients it is highly recommended to caregivers, speech/cognitive therapists and loved ones as well because puzzle solving is a natural team activity.
