What is AMM?
Caring for a family member struggling with Alzheimer’s and Dementia offers little resources to turn to before acknowledging help is needed. Offering a home based introduction and intellectual exercise program allows families to improve their management and understanding until such time that additional assistance may be required. Continually seeking current information and techniques adds to our goal of offering improved quality of life for both the Caregiver and patient or loved one.
The Ashby Memory Method™ is a cognitive therapy for sufferers of dementia based on Dr. Ashby’s original research with brain injuries. AMM is a specifically tailored quality of life enrichment program for persons diagnosed with early to mid stages of Alzheimer’s and other Dementias. AMM is a paper based, non invasive, people centred program combining caregivers understanding and participation, word exercises, visual stimulation and a process called errorless learning and many other techniques from Dr. Ashby’s research. AMM creates personalized activities based on the participant’s interests to stimulate all 5 senses within a one on one environment.
