    “Senior Smart Puzzles is very adult oriented. So many other puzzle books are geared down, more childlike. Residents will enjoy the mental stimulation from these puzzles. I like that Senior Smart Puzzles can also be used as a reminiscence tool since the artwork is vintage drawings. Very diverse.
