Using a variety of simple and effective therapeutic techniques, MnemeTherapy™ offers a cutting edge way to provide an opportunity for increased cognitive engagement with seniors and those who suffer from neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer‘s, stroke, Parkinson’s, and different types of Dementia.
Neuroplasticity is a big word with a simple meaning. Throughout our lives, the brain is constantly changing, molding to the stimuli that come along. Scientists used to think that the brain was a physiologically static organ, and that there were no changes over time. That theory has proven to be completely false, and in fact the brain does change and adapt based on the environment, neural processes, emotions, bodily injury, and thinking.
The ability of the brain to change when it needs to is incredibly important for a wide variety of reasons, including:
- Gross motor control (walking, standing, etc.)
- Fine motor skills (eating, personal hygiene, etc.)
- Responding to new environments
- Emotional stability
- Appropriate reactions to physical situations
- Memory & cognitive function
- Verbal communication
MnemeTherapy™ has been shown to help many patients suffering from dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, physical trauma, and more to improve neuroplasticity. It’s important for your loved one to get the support and benefits of these therapeutic practices so that they can maintain the function they still posses while also building on it for the future. It’s a very exciting therapy and here in the technologically sophisticated San Francisco Bay Area, we find a receptive audience.
How MnemeTherapy™ Helps
This innovative approach can be done right in the home, meaning that seniors and those with limited ability can find the stimulation they need right where they live. Our certified MnemeTherapy practitioners can give your loved one the stimulation and neurological benefits of this wonderful therapy without interrupting their daily routine.
What does the process of MnemeTherapy™ look like? Here are some of the things that you’ll see during a MnemeTherapy™ session with patients:
All of these are combined into a single session to create a comprehensive treatment practice. Each one does something different to the brain, improving neuroplasticity in its own way and offering benefits that extend well beyond the session.
Our documented testimonies show improvements in some client’s verbal skills, mobility, combativeness, and spatial acuity. The working theory is that by creating a natural state called sustained attentive focus, we can encourage the brain to do an assessment of what is going on. Due to neuroplasticity, functions are either moved or whole new pathways are created around the damage. Whatever the reason for the program’s success with dementia, it’s obvious to see that something great is indeed happening.
The activity is one that’s enriching to the life of the seniors who participate in it, and it’s more than just another way to spend time – it’s an in home solution to provide your loved one with incredible benefits that can combat neurological challenges.

Palo Alto Factoid
Birge M. Clark, Palo Alto’s best-loved architect, leaned back in his chair and smiled as he talked about earlier times during an interview with the Palo Alto Weekly in 1979. Clark was 86 at the time. “The disappearance of the horse from the construction business,” he said, “was something we never anticipated.” Clark had seen a number of changes in his business; he started as an architect in 1919. “I used to go down to the building inspector’s office, lay my plan down and hack things out in a half-hour,” he said. “Now there are so many reports to file it can take months.
