I had brain surgery two years ago and have had slight memory problems since then. I ordered these cards after seeing a PBS show on brain plasticity and thinking that I might improve my memory with exercise (not just doing the same type of brain game over and over). These cards give you all kinds of ideas to work different parts of your brain, in groups or by yourself. I not only have improved my memory, but also my focus and mental alertness. I have receommended them to many other friends and and we're just in our fifties!

I've been usingthese cards with one on one conversations with the elderly people in my church and it's opened up avenues of good conversation. I've used them in a couple of small groups I lead and you can almost hear their brains working as they reflect on the questions, work the puzzles. In fact they have "aha" experiences as they solve the puzzles and cry out "Amazing, I did it!" with great sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Several in one group want to get the cards for themselves.

I just love the Brain exercise cards. I wish I had known about this product sooner. I use these cards with my mother who is showing early signs of dementia. The cards are fun and enhance the time my mother and I spend together.

I bought these cards because my mom was recently diagnosed with "age-related memory loss" and I thought these would be great for her. They are. Turns out she (who is 76) and my dad (who is 86) do one card every night after dinner - instead of watching TV - and are absolutely loving it. It stimulates their brains, they have fun and they find out things about each other that they never knew! I'm very happy with my purchase and recommend this product to anyone with memory issues. I may even buy a set for myself as preventative medicine!

I work with seniors and used these cards with one who had stayed sharp and wanted to continue that way. Was able to pick out the ones she could handle more easily re declining sight and arthritic hands, and we had plenty to work with. She found them both fun and challenging, as did I -- despite the fact that I'm in my early 50's and she's in her late 90's!!

Format: Cards
The 100 exercises for a healthy mind which are mental fitness cards developed by the Attainment Company,Inc. are a very good means of helping each person address the growth of brain functioning. These are divided into twelve categories such as (1)wake up your brain, (2) creative problem solving, (3)art and imagination, (4)brainstorming (5)double mind and seven other similar and helpful categories. The hundred versions of activities in themselves are an incentive to action and can be used in any order so that a monotonous routine may be changed to a desireable action. The steady use of this approach will help form the concept of keeping abreast of the expansion of knowledge and reduce obsolesence to the same degree that the entire population faces. This text should stimulate many people in the middle age and the elderly to reconsider their life style in order to move with knowledge expansion in a very constructive manner and to live a more composed life.

I highly recommend these cards for someone who has a loved one with slight dementia. They are plastic coated, so they are very durable and they help a loved one work their mind doing different tasks every day. Each card has things listed for that person to do or work on that day. Its a great product.

I purchased this card set for my 85 year old grandmother who is having some memory issues. She absolutely loves the Mental Fitness Cards. There is one exercise that wants you to do word associations. We had a blast and probably did this for at least an hour. Not only was she giggling like a child, but it was really working her brain! I would definitely recommend this item for anyone who needs to keep their brain active.
