Memory Lane & Olfactory Stimulation
Discover the power of olfactory stimulation when associated with Memory Lane TV.
Olfactory Stimulation Activation
Aromatherapy is a safe, natural and effective use of essential oils. It provides support of the body through olfactory stimulation. Inhalation of essential oils provide an entryway to the limbic system, influencing mood in the amygdala and memory in the hippocampus, as well as other cognitive abilities in pertinent areas of the brain.
The sense of smell is one of the most powerful ways to trigger memory activation via sensory stimulation. There are also therapeutic benefits, specifically with regard to some of the behavioral symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, that aroma-based stimulation can achieve. We have designed our Memory Lane TV solution from its inception to be multi-sensory, to maximize the benefits achieved from stimulation of as many senses as possible in a coordinated, harmonized way. To this end, we have partnered with the professional team at NeuroEssence, Dr. Jennifer Stelter, Johns Hopkins Press author, clinical psychologist, and National Trainer for the Certified Dementia Practitioner certification, and Jessica Ryan, biologist and Certified Dementia Practitioner, who have extensive experience utilizing olfactory stimulation to combat several of the common behavioral symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
We have paired much of the content with proven aroma scents to enhance the experience and therapeutic benefits for the person living with dementia. Most people will experience even greater benefit with regard to managing behavioral symptoms when leveraging the reinforcing power of harmonized multi-sensory stimulation. Try it today to see if it is a fit for you or the person(s) for whom you are caring.
