About the Author:

Kristin Einberger has worked with older adults for 30 years, most of it with people with cognitive impairment. In the last few years, she has focused her time on early memory loss. She developed and facilitated two social day programs for people experiencing early memory loss and assisted in starting another. Currently, she facilitates one of these programs in Fairfield, California. She is also the program coordinator for a senior day program in Northern California. Kristin has presented at numerous local, state, and national conferences, including the Alzheimer’s Association, Brookdale Foundation, American Society on Aging, and the California Council for Adult Education. She has partnered with Janelle Sellick to author a technical manual for the Brookdale Foundation on Creating an Early Memory Loss Program. In addition, she has written an activity card set titled Sharpen Your Senses. Kristin has also written many articles on the same subject.

Review:

"In Brain Flexers, Kristin Einberger and Janelle Sellick provide an easy to follow, comprehensive resource of enjoyable cognitive exercises that tap in to a diverse range of capabilities and challenges, for adults wishing to enhance mental funtioning. This book has an array of options to consider, from questions that elicit a quick one word response, to group exerciese and longer discussion points, all promoting socialization while working multiple areas of the brain. There is truly something here that will appeal to everyone. Especially appreciated are the suggestions for leaders at the beginning of each section that clearly describes the benefts, and provides hints on how to use the materials in a way that elicits the best response. If one section has a particularly robust reaction from participants, ideas for expanding on the subject matter are provided. This is a perfect tool for engaging participants with fun exercises that flex multiple areas of memory and cognition, while also promoting social engagement." (Judy Filippoff, MSW, Director, Early Stage Services The Alzheimer’s Association®Northern California and Northern Nevada Chapter 2015-04-01)

"Impressively well written, organized and presented, 'Brain Flexers: Games and Activities to Strengthen Memory' will prove to be an enduringly useful and popular addition to personal, professional, community, and academic library collections. Indeed, no senior citizen center should be without a copy of 'Brain Flexers' and it would be an invaluable addition to Alzheimer's and Adult Memory Loss supplemental studies reading lists." (Mary Cowper, Reviewer The Midwest Book Review 2015-08-19)
