Unforgettable Notes

Thanks for visiting! This is the page for my ‘keep your mind active’ resources.

The Let’s Focus on Puzzles books are activity books for older adults who are living with mild cognitive impairment, mild dementia, in stroke rehab, or just having difficulties concentrating.

They look like standard large print puzzle books (with no mention of dementia or illness anywhere in the book). The difference is that the activities, while fun and familiar, are more bite-sized and achievable.

You can find Let’s Focus on Puzzles Book 1, Let’s Focus on Puzzles Book 2 and Let’s Focus on Puzzles Book 3 on Amazon.

If you’ve come for the free sample Let’s Focus on Puzzles activity book, it’s now in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. It’s still free, along with the Tips for Carers.

You’ll have to sign up to download it, but TPT is a fantastic, very reputable marketplace, where every seller has to have a free product. If you know an Activities Co-ordinator or Therapist that needs to make multiple copies of the puzzles, I also have a printable version of Let’s Focus on Puzzles Book 1. (Other books coming soon.)

If you’d like to get updates on new books, just leave your email address, directly below. I promise not to share it with anyone. Or follow me on my Amazon Unforgettable Notes page!

Tip: The main ‘pop-up’ subscription box on this site is for English language teachers or volunteers, but the one on this page is specifically for Unforgettable Notes!

Here are some more of my Unforgettable Notes visitor and log books as well as the new picture books with light verse and three classic British poetry collections (others coming soon!): you can see all the different covers on my author page…

The rest of this website is all about my English language resources, including ESL word puzzles.

As you might guess, I work in Adult Education, so for my Unforgettable Notes puzzle books, I consult with a wonderful Dementia Lifestyle Coordinator.
