The Memory Treatment Program

The Memory Treatment Program provides clinicians with a targeted way of using the MTCA-developed exercises and interventions. Exercises in this program have been utilized by the Memory Training Centers of America for over a decade to treat more than one thousand patients suffering from early stage Alzheimer’s disease, Mild Cognitive Disorder and other causes of memory loss. Professionals are able to utilize the program according to the clearly-defined configurations already established, or can manually control the level of difficulty and select specific exercises to meet the individual needs of each patient.

In order to develop the clinical expertise required to administer the program with optimal effectiveness, clinicians are provided with ongoing education through MTC University on the theoretical and clinical aspects of cognitive evaluation and treatment.

Program Features

The Memory Treatment Program consists of a series of over 17 Exercises grouped into 5 modules:

The Memory Treatment Program additionally allows the Clinician to:

  • Assess the patient’s level of cognitive impairment based on an initial level of performance
  • Graphically view the patient performance/impairment level and progression level for each exercise in the assigned module(s) via tables and longitudinal graphs, etc.
  • Determine an optimal treatment plan of modules/exercises, based on patient complaint and performance
  • Use pre-determined automatic rules of progression to optimize individual programs and create a unique patient experience
  • Utilize clinician-determined length of time in recall phase to exercise working memory vs. strengthening of patient capacity for storage of new information
