Elder Care

An easy, fun and engaging reminiscence activity shown to have positive memory benefits in retirement living settings

A novel reminiscence program centered around HippoCamera

Whether you’ve got a structured reminiscence program in your retirement living or homecare organization, or if you want to introduce one, HippoCamera is unique! Developed by experts in cognitive psychology and neuroscience, HippoCamera has been shown to boost memory for specific events by over 50% and sharpen activity in the hippocampus, the area of the brain responsible for taking recent memories and making them last for the long term.

As we age, the hippocampus can become less effective, especially when a diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer’s is involved. The platform works with cognitively normal individuals and those with a memory deficit - leading to a significant boost in recall for important life events.
