Great NEW Book

For Those Diagnosed With MCI

MCI book keep your brain stronger for longer book cover

Look out, Sudoku! 

Keep Your Brain Stronger for Longer offers a fantastic tool to help people exercise their brain. This book is ideal for those diagnosed with  MCI (Mild cognitive Impairment),  EOAD (Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease) as well as anyone interested in maintaining their own brain health including those caring for them.

The book also helps us understand cognition affects much more than just memory loss, dispelling some of the myths and stigmas associated with dementia. Kudos Tonia Vojtkofsky, PsyD, for pulling together such a great resource!

Anyone who takes a look in the book will see immediately these are not just memory or recall exercises. Through a variety of specific exercises one will they have been purposely developed to work the areas of the brain that manages:



Executive Functioning



Processing Speed



Visual-Spatial Skills

Personally I love the wide variety of exercises offered in “Keep You Brain Stronger For Longer.”  I found each of them challenging, fascinating and fun to do.

The majority of our time we spoke about the effects of changing terminology and it’s impact on those diagnosed as well as the public at large. There were some options discussed on how not to add additional stress to those living with the disease and how medical professionals and the government agencies may wish to look at things a bit differently to truly help those living with the disease.
