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
According to research by the Mayo Clinic, about 7 percent of adults between ages 70 and 89 develop Mild Cognitive Impairment every year. Characterized by memory loss and decreased ability to learn, MCI is a strong predictor of Alzheimer?s disease and related dementias. But it is never too late?or too early?to take action against cognitive decline?including exercising the brain to keep it stronger for longer. Now Dr. Tonia Vojtkofsky, a sought-after specialist on MCI and Alzheimer?s, presents 201 word and number exercises optimized for people with MCI?challenging, but still do-able:
  • Complete-the-word puzzles and searches
  • Logic problems and sequencing puzzles
  • Discover-the-pattern exercises, and much more.
Each exercise notes the primary ability it targets (e.g., memory, language, executive functioning, calculation), and most exercises target more than one!
