How it Works
The science of multisensory stimulation
Memory Lane TV makes it easy and affordable for anyone to access what recent research has shown to be one of the best, all-natural therapeutic tool for memory loss: sensory stimulation.
Memory care research continues to show many benefits to multisensory stimulation in older adults with memory loss, and Memory Lane TV offers one of the richest multisensory experiences available. Go beyond sights and sounds to engage the sense of smell with scents selected to enhance particular programs, or you can add other customization options, like personal photographs or favorite songs to spark memories.
Developed and tested in clinical memory care settings by caring artists, producers, and memory care experts who have seen firsthand the ups and downs of Alzheimer’s, dementia, and memory loss, Memory Lane TV is the medication-free, multisensory solution supported by science that more families and facilities need.
- Elevate Mood
- Resolve Conflict
- Offer Respite
- Restore Rhythms
- Manage Symptoms
Memory care research shows that reducing stress and frustration can improve memory in older adults, an all-natural memory tool called the relaxation response.
Research also shows that one of the benefits of guided imagery like Memory Lane TV is a reduction in anxiety and depression in older adults. Our positive, plot-free guided imagery is designed to evoke a sense of wonder and wellbeing using inspiring images, immersive video, mood-elevating music, and more.
The shock and grief of a new diagnosis. Confusion, fear, and disorientation. Struggles to express their needs and wants, anger at not being understood. These are all common behaviors of dementia and it is perfectly normal for people experiencing memory loss and their caregivers to find themselves in unproductive, negative feedback loops.
Current memory care research recommends reducing the use of psychotropic medications to manage dementia and anger, and Memory Lane TV is an all-natural way to restore calm and reconnect.
Research reveals that caregivers providing daily care and memory support report up to 20% more stress than other providers. We made sure the multisensory techniques used in Memory Lane TV work equally well when watched alone so caregivers can take the time they need to focus on other people, tasks, or their own personal needs.
You can take a moment for you, and when you are ready, take a moment to pause the program and share.
Our circadian rhythms keep our minds and bodies aligned with the ebb and flow of the day—awakening us in the morning, triggering hunger at mealtimes, making us drowsy in the evening, and lulling us to sleep. Even in the early stages of memory loss, these rhythms can become disrupted.
Memory Lane TV multisensory stimulation is timed to help create the right energy and activity level for the moment—naturally. When you press “play” on our Live Play guided imagery, the music, images, and aromas will always fit the time of day.
The last 50 years of memory care research show mindfulness is a powerful memory aid for seniors. When we are truly experiencing the present, we worry less about the past or the future and focus on fully experiencing right here, right now.
Every Memory Lane TV program is a journey into the joys of the present and research on mindfulness training and memory loss shows improvements in quality of life, physical wellbeing, and mental health—without additional medications. Whether you need to engage, redirect, or calm, Memory Lane TV’s integrative approach can create the moment you need.
