For Professional Caregivers
A transformative, easy-to-use tool
Activities for Memory Care Residents
Developed by medical and memory care professionals and clinically tested in residential care settings, Memory Lane TV provides therapeutic multisensory experiences using positive, plot-free media at an accessible price point for more assisted living, memory care, and older adult communities. Each immersive, interactive program engages all the senses—sight, sound, smell, and touch—and can be started quickly and easily using everyday technology most providers already have on hand. No need to raise budgets, hire extra staff, or learn intimidating new technology or protocols. Finding sensory activities for people with dementia, redirecting and soothing difficult emotions or behaviors, and even organizing caregiver activities and training is as simple as turning on the TV.Start Your Free Trial
Memory Lane TV’s rich, culturally diverse, and engaging images, sounds, and sensory stimulations make great memory loss support activities for dementia patients. Drawing on the latest research into positive approaches to dementia care and focused on an uplifting, frustration-free experience, Memory Lane TV gets activity groups in residential settings into a positive flow. Our digital, therapeutic content does not ask people with memory loss to follow a storyline—no confusion or frustration. They invite them to relive or create their own stories. See for yourself!

Group Activities for Dementia Residents that Make a Difference
Designing meaningful ways to keep dementia patients busy and engaged with good group activities for seniors in assisted living is a daily challenge. Memory Lane TV will help solve one of the biggest problems for people living with dementia: a lack of engagement and stimulation that leads to isolation, boredom, and other behavioral challenges. Functioning as a form of sensory therapy, our streaming platform will simultaneously stimulate multiple senses through a combination of visual imagery, calming sounds, smells, and/or tactile stimulation training experiences from the care partner. Extensive research has shown the benefits of this type of therapeutic tool include positive effects on decreasing agitation, anxiety, apathy, and depression; all behaviors most often associated with dementia.
Memory Lane TV empowers staff and enhances interactions with residents by:
- Resolving Conflict
- Restoring Daily Rhythm
- Holistic Approach
- Engaging the Senses
- Offering A Respite
If you are searching for “How to deal with aggressive dementia patients” or “dealing with combative dementia patients” know that fear, confusion, and frustration are natural emotions for people with memory loss and can be a stressful part of providing person-centered care. Memory Lane TV’s uplifting programming can help residents refocus their energy and process emotions in more productive ways, creating a positive feedback loop with their caregivers that promotes safety and wellbeing for all.
Restoring Daily Rhythm
Restoring a Daily Rhythm
Losing memory means losing track of the way a day typically unfolds and falling out of your circadian rhythm can create a cascade of health and behavior issues, like sundowning or lack of appetite, as well as logistical challenges for staff. Memory Lane TV’s multisensory activities for Alzheimer’s patients are designed to get residents back into the flow of shared time, with brighter cues in the morning to boost energy and appetite or soothing signals when it is time to rest.
Manage symptoms with fewer medications
Today’s memory care and assisted living teams strive to reduce the use of prescription drugs by strengthening the mind-body connection, and Memory TV’s multisensory approach is designed to support those goals. Providers participating in Memory Lane TV product development reported using fewer psychotropic drugs with residents. Our all-natural alternative digital therapies can enhance any dementia care plan, and Memory Lane TV group activities for memory care patients align with person-centered care, the Teepa Snow positive approach to dementia care, the Household Model, and many 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.
Offering A Respite
Offering a needed respite
We all need moments of rest, reflection, and escape. If you are a home caregiver or occupational therapist in charge of group activities for people living with dementia, there are times you need a moment to focus on a particular resident or a particularly demanding task. In challenging times, turn on Memory TV and take a moment for yourself—or share the moment with residents! You will be refreshed, renewed, and ready to reconnect.
