How to Help Someone with Dementia
When someone you love is diagnosed with memory loss, everything changes. Learning how to care for, and find activities for someone living at home with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia can be overwhelming. If you are providing dementia home care, restoring calm in your household, reconnecting with your loved one, and renewing your sense of purpose can be as simple as turning on the TV. Memory Lane TV provides positive, multisensory, therapeutic programming on demand for families dealing with dementia. Each immersive and interactive experience engages all the senses, helping your loved one focus on a series of magical, mindful moments right in your own home. Many programs are even designed to be paired with therapeutic scents, using olfactory stimulation’s ability to improve outcomes.Start Your Free Trial
When family caregivers first watch Memory Lane TV, they are sometimes confused by the plot-free programming. The rich, immersive, and engaging images, sounds, and sensory stimulations make sense when you stop trying to connect them and simply let them carry you to a positive, relaxed place—the way a spouse, sibling, friend, or parent with dementia will. Memory Lane TV draws on the latest research into the positive approach to dementia care and focuses on an uplifting, frustration-free experience. Our digital therapies do not tell stories people with memory loss cannot follow. They invite them to relive or create their own. See for yourself! Turn on Memory Lane TV
How to help someone with dementia
Whether you are taking care of elderly parents at home or providing in-home dementia care for a spouse, a neighbor, or a friend, you know memory loss can can have an impact on others. Clinically developed and rigorously tested in real care environments, Memory Lane TV was designed by medical and memory care professionals, scientists, artists, and producers with real-time feedback from residents and care providers to:
- Resolve Conflict
- Restore Daily Rhythm
- Holistic Approach
- Engaging the senses
- Offer A Respite
Fear, confusion, and frustration are natural emotions for people experiencing memory loss, and this leads to a link between dementia and anger—and dementia and being mean to family—making it harder to keep loved ones safe. Memory Lane TV programming can help your loved one refocus their energy and process emotions in more positive ways. And sharing these interactive, multisensory experiences together can also strengthen your family’s connection.
Restore Daily Rhythm
Restore a Daily Rhythm
Losing memory can mean losing track of the way a day unfolds. Sundowning, when dementia symptoms worsen in the evening, is an example of what can happen when internal and external clocks do not align. Not eating in late stage dementia, for example, is another. At any stage of memory loss, Memory Lane TV programming can get your loved one back into the flow of time with brighter cues in the morning to boost energy and appetite or soothing signals that it is time to rest, depending upon the time of day or night.
Today’s treatments try to reduce the use of prescription drugs by strengthening the mind-body connection, and Memory Lane TV’s multisensory approach is designed to do exactly that. Our all-natural alternative digital therapeutic tools and sensory stimulation techniques can enhance any dementia care plan or community-based program, and Memory Lane TV aligns with person-centered care, the Teepa Snow positive approach to dementia care, the Household Model, and more.
Engaging the senses
Engaging ALL the senses
Memory Lane TV may seem similar to digital therapies that stimulate the mind through interactive games, but Memory Lane TV engages all the senses to reinforce the mind/body connection, not just sight and sound. Our therapeutically paired olfactory components stimulate the sense of smell, while environmental ambience cues and touch elements make Memory Lane TV more immersive, more engaging, and more effective—for less.

We all need moments of rest, reflection, and escape. If you are researching treatment options for yourself or caring for a parent, friend, or a loved one, you know how overwhelming it can sometimes be. In challenging times, turn on Memory TV and take a moment for yourself—or share the moment with your loved one! (We provide inspiring and informative caregiver-focused programming, too.) You will be refreshed, renewed, and ready to reconnect with your loved one.
Help for Alzheimer’s families
If you are dealing with dementia in a parent, it can be even more difficult to see the changes memory loss can bring. After all, the memories they are losing are also your own. For an even more powerful, memory-enhancing multisensory experience, Memory Lane TV can customize your channel with family photos or reminders connected to personal passions and life stories.
