One in 25 people will experience a memory impairment as a result of a neurological disorder such as stroke, epilepsy, head injury, autoimmune disease, brain tumour or infection. Memory rehabilitation has the ability to improve functioning in many of these non-dementia conditions. The manualised, group-based program, ‘Making the Most of Your Memory’ (Radford et al. 2010), has been shown to improve everyday memory in these types of patients even years after the onset of their disorder. As a result of the program, patients reported using more strategies to support their memory, met their memory related goals, and improved their learning ability. Publications from the research conducted using this program are listed below.
MEMO converts this program into an engaging online experience with added content, interactive strategy-based exercises and feedback.
