About this title


With proper supports in place, people with memory loss can be taught to remember information and even learn tasks that will promote their independence. Spaced Retrieval Step by Step: An Evidence-Based Memory Intervention describes a simple, effective process that can significantly improve people's daily performance, safety, and confidence.

This practical guide takes a fresh approach to Spaced Retrieval, teaching this innovative process step by step so you can better assist people in learning important actions and information, such as when to take medications or how to use a walker. With this proven memory-training strategy, you help people learn and store specific information that, with practice, can be easily accessed and retrieved.

Illustrative case examples throughout demonstrate the numerous ways Spaced Retrieval can be used to help people with memory loss eliminate repetitive questioning, reduce anxiety, improve recall of important facts, increase safety, and much more. An additional feature is an instructive timeline that illustrates the historical breadth and depth of research supporting this useful strategy.

Filled with practical insights and advice for care partners, this book also provides screening and program forms (also available as downloadable PDFs), an easy-to-follow protocol for practicing Spaced Retrieval, and advice and tools for developing visual cuing.

Speech-language pathologists, occupational and physical therapists, nurses, and home care professionals at all levels, as well as family members, can use Spaced Retrieval to positively impact the lives of people with memory loss.
