Help your clients who have memory loss remember important information or actions with the proven memory training strategy of spaced retrieval (SR). Using this therapeutic communication method allows people to learn and store important information (such as when to take medications or how to use a walker) in long-term memory so that, with practice, it can be easily accessed and retrieved.
Now you can learn this innovative process step by step, from identifying a person’s needs and desires, to creating the spaced retrieval format that supports those needs, to using SR practices to increase success in the person’s daily routines. Plus, you’ll get illustrative case studies, assessment forms, visual cueing tools, and tips for communication.
With SR, speech-language pathologists, occupational and physical therapists, nurses, and healthcare and homecare professionals at all levels of care can bring more confidence, safety, and independence into the lives of people with memory loss and their care partners.
