Puzzler, the UK’s largest puzzle creator, and The People’s Friend, the longest-running women’s weekly magazine, have partnered up to create a dementia friendly activity book for care home residents unable to see loved ones due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Your Unforgettable Friend is filled with Puzzler activities including picture crossword, colouring in, spot the difference, wordsearch and bingo, all based on nostalgic topics. You’ll also find content from The People’s Friend magazine, including three short stories, 80 years of The Wizard of Oz and a celebration of the life of actor Kirk Douglas.

The activity pack is fully downloadable and has already been sent to more than forty care home providers across the UK to download and distribute to residents for free.

Puzzler is the UK’s largest puzzle creator and is best known for its comprehensive range of puzzle magazines covering crosswords, word searches, kriss krosses, codewords and arrowords.

The People’s Friend is the longest-running women’s weekly magazine, and is loved by readers across the world. It’s a magazine for people who love to read good-quality fiction, and who are looking for uplifting, feel-good entertainment.

Angela Gilchrist, Editor of The People’s Friend, said, ‘I’m delighted that the “Friend” is bringing a little light relief to residents of the nation’s care homes at this difficult time.’

Mark Whiteway, Publishing Manager at Puzzler, added, ‘We’d like to send the care home residents our best wishes and hope they’ll enjoy the puzzles and activities that we’ve created especially for them.’
