Clue Detective Puzzle Agency Welcomes Alzheimer’s Society Research Findings That Show Puzzles Benefit Older People

The Clue Detective Puzzle Agency is delighted to learn of the recent research conducted by the Alzheimer’s Society through Kings College, London and its findings.  The research has found that doing regular brain training exercises can help to improve cognitive function in older people.

The Clue Detective Puzzle Agency is passionate about promoting the benefits of solving puzzles to seniors, and has created their very own online puzzle portal, which contains hundreds of original crosswords, codewords and Sudoku.  All puzzles can be solved on a PC, laptop or tablet.  The portal is updated on a regular basis.

Catherine Eagleson, Founder and Creative Director of the Clue Detective Puzzle Agency says “its Online Puzzle Portal is a wonderful tool for seniors’ brain training.

In February 2015, the Clue Detective established a puzzle club at the Portarlington Neighbourhood House. A group of seniors meet once a month.  A laptop is connected to a large flat screen television and the puzzles are solved as a group activity.

Members enjoy solving quick, general knowledge and cryptic crosswords and codewords online.  It’s great fun, and members find that working together to solve puzzles, as well as the social interaction is highly beneficial.  They are always telling me that they are ‘learning something new…” Ms. Eagleson says

Solving word and logic puzzles has been a popular pastime for many people over a long period of time.  It shows no sign of abating, and it is great to learn that puzzlers are deriving real benefit by taking the time to play and solve these games in an online setting.
