MLTV Olfactory Stimulation Partner (sense of smell)

NeuroEssence

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. For more information regarding these aroma scents. 

Check back with is in the coming weeks for news on the release of our olfactory stimulation tools and information on how you can integrate stimulating the sense of smell into your Memory Lane TV experience for even better outcomes.

Words Matter…

The team at Memory Lane TV believes that language matters, and it matters to us how we and others talk about the various aspects of living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.  We realize that some families and professionals who are already well versed in this universe may notice, perhaps with irritation, that in some places on our website we use terms (e.g.  “patient” or “sufferer”, etc.) that we would ordinarily not use in this context.  

But we also understand the reality that people learning about these sometimes difficult, sometimes scary topics for the first time will be searching for helpful information using everyday language and terms, because they aren’t specialists.  They’re just regular folks looking for answers, and maybe some help.  We want to meet people where they are.  That’s why the team at Memory Lane TV has made the conscious choice to optimize the language used on our website to make it as easy as possible for people to find us – even people who aren’t well versed in the preferred nomenclature of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. We apologize in advance for the discomfort that might cause to some of us.
