Residents challenge themselves to a jigsaw at Hayes care homeResidents at Aston House care home in Hayes put their minds to the task of completing a jigsaw puzzle.

One of Aston’s Resident Marjorie enjoyed completing the jigsaws and found it both relaxing and said it brought a great sense of achievement when she finally completed it. 

She commented saying, "I loved the jigsaw, it was very rewarding. Thank you to the staff for encouraging me."

The staff created a relaxing atmosphere to help Residents concentrate and the afternoon went down as a great success.

For Residents, doing a jigsaw can have a meditative effect on the brain, helping to calm someone with dementia and help them to feel content. It has also proven to improve memory and brain function, including those suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia. 

Residents Marjorie commented, "It takes me back to my wonderful days when I used to have fun with my friends."

Aston House is part of a peaceful residential community in Hayes in Middlesex. This lovely, purpose-built care home with 48 beds offers residential memory and nursing memory care for those living with dementia.
