What is MnemeTherapy®?
MnemeTherapy® uses everyday
pleasures such as singing, movement,
painting and story telling in a unique
combination to stimulate dramatic
changes in the brain. Although our goal is
to provide a rewarding experience,
documented testimonies show significant
improvement in some clients in verbal
skills, mobility, combativeness, spatial
acuity, understanding instructions

they CAN do and provides a sense of pride and self-esteem"
