Information For Patients
Are you a person who has experienced memory issues as the result of an acquired brain injury? MEMORehab can help.
The Importance of Memory
Memory plays a crucial role in shaping our identity and our ability to learn new things. When our memory falters, it can make it hard to work or possibly even to live independently. Unfortunately, various neurological disorders can impact our memory and make it harder to carry out our daily activities.
The good news is that even after years of memory problems, there are methods that can help to improve it. As memory improves, so does self-confidence, making it easier to handle work and everyday experiences.
How We Can Help
MEMORehab is an online program designed to help you better understand memory, how it can be affected by various conditions, and what changes you can make in your daily life to improve it. It also helps you learn and practice strategies to improve your memory.
This program is led by an experienced clinician, with whom you will meet for six, one-hour sessions. These sessions can take place through our web-based app (on your computer) or in person. Meetings with the clinician are run either 1-on-1 or in small groups. You will also have access to a number of learning tools such as videos and computerised exercises.
Watch educational videos then complete quizzes to test your knowledge on:
How memory can be affected by certain conditions
Lifestyle factors that can support memory function
Attend 6-guided sessions with your clinician via video conferencing, either individually, or in a group of people experiencing similar issues to discuss:
Strategies you can apply to your daily life to compensate for memory loss
Your stories and experiences with likeminded people who face similar challenges
Apply strategies using computerised training methods and receive guidance to help you apply them via:
Computerised exercises to help you remember faces, locations, and instructions
Homework tasks to help you implement new strategies at home or at work each week
How Can I Participate in the Program?
