Our Host, Lori La Bey talks with Alban Maino, a Franco-American documentary film producer based in Portland, Maine and the CEO of Memory Lane TV.  Alban was inspired by his personal experience caring for his grandmother.  He explains, “When my grandmother, Rosette, was affected by Alzheimer’s, I searched and searched for a tool, a medicine, something to help manage her symptoms, but found there were no effective options available. I delved into the published research, and slowly discovered decades of investigations into sensory stimulation and memory. Eventually I was able to leverage my media background and construct some sensory stimulation tools based on that research that helped with my Grandmother’s symptoms. This was the genesis of Memory Lane TV.”

A Deeper Dive on Memory Lane TV

Memoro, Inc. is the company behind the recent launch of Memory Lane TV, a digital health tool designed to alleviate many of the common behavioral and psychological symptoms experienced by people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. 
 
At the heart of its design is the employment of sensory stimulation, which has been proven an effective approach to help those living with dementia.  We spent more than five years developing this solution, translating more than fifty years of published medical research on dementia, sensory stimulation, and memory activation into an effective and easy to use form factor: A streaming media service providing therapeutically designed content that supports the wellbeing of individuals living with Memory Loss.
 
This specialized content includes a collection of scientifically designed films, with elements of music, soundscapes, video sequences, and still image montages that combine to induce a variety of responses in the viewers, such as anxiety and stress reduction, re-grounding with the circadian rhythm to combat sundowning, appetite stimulation, increased engagement, memory activation, and other positive benefits.  Moreover, it is unique in that much of it is designed to be used in conjunction with olfactory stimulation – the use of aromas to incorporate the sense of smell – in a harmonized, integrated way.  Adding olfactory stimulation in such an integrated way is like turning the benefits dial to eleven!
 
Finally, unlike regular television, which can exacerbate the very symptoms that our approach is designed to combat, all of our content is plot-free and non-character dependent; it’s non-editorial.  This aspect can be confusing at first, but it’s important to remember that this is not entertainment, it is a therapeutic tool designed to achieve symptomatic relief.

Dementia Chats Recording from Tuesday Dec 9th, 2014

Copy of DC_HQ_062714_bannerpurpleDementia Chats Recording from

Tuesday Dec 9th, 2014

Today we had a great discussion on the term “sundowning” and also had talked about some great tips for the holidays.  We also discussed the movie “Still Alice,” some gifts wrapped in this disease.  I am not sure why, but for some reason Harry Urban did not show up on the recording, although we all heard and saw him while it was live. I apologize for this technology error.  Adobe Connect is working on getting this fixed.

Our Experts Living With Dementia Are:harry_urbanHarry Urban, Founder of “Forget Me Not,” a closed support group on Facebook for those with dementia, their care partners, professionals and advocates.

Michael was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease at the age of 49. He is no longer able to work. Michael now spend my time trying to increase awareness of this disease, and work to increase funding for research. He just finished writing his book outlining my experience with Alzheimer’s.

Robert Bowles Pharma PicRoberts Bowles, sold his pharmacy in December 2010, Robert lost his purpose in life. Eighteen months later, he was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia. One year after his diagnosis, I found my purpose in life again….that of dementia awareness and transparently journalizing and sharing my experience, strength and hope seeking to help both persons with dementia and their care partners.
