In 2008, Dr Allison Lamont, PhD, published her ground-breaking research into age-related memory loss. There was world-wide interest in her findings and she has since addressed conferences in Atlanta, Edinburgh and New Zealand. She identified six key areas of memory skills that were pivotal in maintaining a confident, active and independent lifestyle in later life and it is these that form the basis of the Memory.Foundation’s brain tools. This knowledge needs to be shared!
“Your memory is a living part of you that can grow and expand to meet the demands you make of it. Now is the time to build your memory resistance, the ‘cognitive reserve‘ you need to have as a buffer against forgetting and other signs of memory loss that occur without intervention. Just as you know you need to keep physically fit to be healthy, so your brain needs exercise, too.”.
