At 87 years old, Alban's vivacious, beloved grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Alban stepped in to care for her, relying on his previous experience with palliative care for his older brother.
However, Alban was not a medical professional. He was a French documentary filmmaker—a story-teller—by trade. As his grandmother's symptoms increased, Alban searched for ways to improve her day and prepare her for a calm night. He searched for restful content that his grandmother would recognize and connect with. He found streaming programs for pets, but nothing for his grandmother!
Backed by over 50 years of scientific research and compatible with any dementia care plan, Memory Lane TV is a simple, safe, and inexpensive way for families and caregivers to help someone with memory degeneration to lower anxiety and boost energy levels as well as recall distant memories and relive past joys.
If you turn on the TV for someone with Alzheimer’s, other dementias, or memory loss from other causes, they can often just as quickly tune out. Or worse – they can become agitated, stressed, and confused.
Memory Lane TV does things differently. Designed by artists, musicians, producers, and memory care professionals for the way people experiencing cognitive challenges or dementia experience the world, these on-demand programs help people with memory loss to focus and be present in the moment. It can be personalized for the loved one, with music from their lifetime—tunes that will get their toes tapping once again, hobbies they once enjoyed, and other restful activities (think "happy little trees" with Bob Ross). This “slow television” approach helps viewers let go of worries about the past and the future and fully experience right here, right now.
