Overcome memory loss
I love it that we are learning more and more about ways that help to overcome memory loss. That’s why this King5 story caught my attention.
I’ve been using hypnosis for dementia with clients since 2008. The research supports using hypnosis for dementia. As I think about it, music, dancing and improv are all forms of trance that slow down the impacts of dementia and improve quality of life for those living with the condition.
If you or a loved one are living with dementia, give me a call or email me and lets schedule your first session. I am happy to meet you at my office in the Medical Dental Building in downtown Seattle, at my office on Bainbridge Island, or worldwide online.
I’ve experienced very successful online sessions with people living with Alzheimer’s who were living in a memory care center.
Edmonds improv class helps dementia patients overcome memory loss
March 12, 2018: “It can be terrifying to get up in front of a group and say what’s on your mind, with no script and no experience in public speaking. But for a group of people living with dementia it’s therapeutic, and part of an effort to find new ways to treat memory loss.
“They came in tentative, they came in unsure of what they were getting themselves into,” said Rob Martin, director of improv at Taproot Theater in Seattle.
That apprehension quickly dissolves on Monday mornings at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, where a group of people is challenging the limits of memory loss, in a dementia-friendly improv acting and comedy class.
Martin tosses out an idea, and the rest of them run with it. They dance, gesture, and act out their feelings, with only a few moments to think about how they’ll express themselves.
“This is all about getting back to the root of who they are,” he said.”
