Description

Start Exercising Your Brain Now: 201 Word and Number Exercises to Challenge Your Memory, Reasoning, Visual-Spatial Skills, Vocabulary, and More!

Keep your brain active, even with MCI. For adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment, brain exercises are the best way to stay sharp and delay the onset of dementia. That’s why cognitive specialist Dr. Tonia Vojtkofsky tailored this fun workbook specifically for people with MCI. It’s the first of its kind!

    Find a word that meets the definition and contains the letters “CAN”

  1. Truthful; straightforward; frank
  2. A brown nut with an edible kernel
  3. A cylinder black of wax with a wick
    Pick the one statement that is correct:

    UWYVX
  1. V is right of X.
  2. W is right of V.
  3. V is between U and Y.
  4. Y is right of W.
    Find and complete the pattern:

  1. 5, 8, 12, 17, 23, _____, _____, _____, _____.
  2. 14, 56, 224, 896, _____, _____, _____, _____.
  3. 5, 15, 30, 90, 180 _____, _____, _____, _____.
Plus: Complete the word, image recall, determine the order, matching, true or false, logic problems, decode using clues, trivia, discover the pattern, word mazes, and math games.

“The idea for the book originated from my need to provide appropriate brain exercises for my clients who have MCI. All of the brain-exercise books on the market today are for people with no cognitive impairment and therefore were too hard for my clients. I knew that I had to provide something for this underserved population.”—Dr. Tonia Vojtkofsky

Review quotes

“Look out, Sudoku! Keep Your Brain Stronger for Longer offers a fantastic tool to help people exercise their brain—and will be greatly appreciated and well received by those with MCI as well as those caring for them. It also helps us to understand that cognition is affected by much more than just memory loss, and goes a long way to help dispel some of the myths and stigmas associated with dementia. Kudos for pulling together such a great resource!”
Lori La Bey, founder of AlzheimersSpeaks.com

“Studies show that cognitive training and healthy brain habits help build brain resilience. In Keep You Brain Stronger for Longer, Dr. Vojtkofsky offers concrete, engaging exercises that those with mild cognitive impairment can use to do just that. This engaging and easy-to-use volume is a welcome new resource for those facing mild memory loss and their caregivers.”
Virginia Biggar, Director, Clergy Network, USAgainstAlzheimer’s

“A great book for testing and challenging one’s memory! By mixing up its various games, Keep Your Brain Stronger for Longer makes brain exercise fun and interesting while helping people focus their memory training. For our aging population, the book’s format is friendlier, easier to handle, and more familiar than using a computer program to evaluate and train their memory—and makes the games more fun to complete.”
Rebecca Ailes-Fine, Founder of WISP (Women Inspiring Scientific Progress) in support of Banner Alzheimer’s Institute, Founding Member of Women Against Alzheimer’s

“In her creative volume of brain exercises, Dr. Vojtkofsky offers people with MCI a user friendly way to make ‘cognitive workouts’ part of their daily routine. Done individually, or with support of a care partner as needed, these exercises empower people with MCI to proactively respond to the cognitive challenges they face.”
Cordula Dick-Muehlke, PhD, Consultant in Aging and Dementia; Principal, Cordula Cares

“Dr. Vojtkofsky has a ‘sixth sense’ for connecting with people suffering from mild cognitive impairment. The comprehensive activities that she has developed in this book will no doubt help many people who are managing their cognitive condition.”
Kevin Liang, PhD, Cofounder and Chief Scientific Officer of Ceresti Health
