The Memory Foundation
Why the Memory Foundation?
After caregiving their mother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease at the age of 92, sisters Dr. Allison Lamont and Gillian Eadie established the Brain and Memory Foundation to ensure that everyone over 50 knows that brain and memory improvement is possible at any age. Brain plasticity describes our ability for brain connections to grow whenever something new is learned and memorised; this increased brain mass of dendrites provides a buffer against memory loss in later life. Beginning on an active memory plan works best if begun in the late 40s, the 50s, or early 60s.
Dr. Allison Lamont, PhD (Psychology), MA (Hons.), MNZAC, MNZPsS, APS, ASSBI is internationally known for her research into age-related memory loss. Her research, published by Verlag in Germany in March, 2008, excited great interest because of the focus she gave to the key areas of memory skills needed for independent living in older age. She identified six key areas of memory skills that were pivotal in maintaining a confident, active and independent lifestyle in later life. Working closely with her sister, award-winning educator, Gillian Eadie, brain training tools have been developed based around these six critical skills. Dr. Lamont has presented her findings at world conferences in the USA, Scotland, and New Zealand and her research sells through Amazon.com and a host of other book stores. She is founder and clinician at the Auckland Memory Clinic.
Gillian Eadie, MEd, BA, LTCL, HFNZCS, Churchill Millennium Fellow, has been a teacher, administrator and school principal for more than 35 years. Also an international presenter in education, Gillian has taught young people from elementary to senior high school and has a passionate interest in how people of all ages learn best. She is now with The University of Auckland where she chaired the University of Auckland Human Participant Ethics committee, which approves university research. On hearing of Dr. Lamont's work on Memory and the Brain, she became committed to working with Dr. Lamont to ensure that over-50s, worldwide, could benefit from these new research findings.
Healthy adults reaching the age of 50+ can retain their youthful memory skills. While the Memory Foundation ws established in clean, green New Zealand, our interested community of followers live in many parts of the world. Both Allison and Gillian regularly travel abroad to promote the aims of the Fundation and we would love to assist you in any way we can.
