The Memory and Aging Program® is an evidence-based education and memory strategy training program for older adults experiencing normal age-related memory changes.

Through interactive lectures, discussion, and practical exercises, participants learn about memory changes that occur with age—what’s normal and what’s not—and acquire tools to better manage their memory function.
 


The Memory and Aging Program is now offered in two different formats:

  1. Facilitator-led group program Offered continually at Baycrest since 1997, this five-week workshop has served nearly 1500 participants. Research shows that graduates gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence to improve day to day memory functioning.
  2. Self-guided eLearning program With generous funding from Baycrest and the Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation, the Memory and Aging Program team was proud to partner with e-learning experts, software developers, and end-users to develop and launch this fully self-guided online adaption of our group workshop. It is accessible anywhere, at any time, from any internet-connected computer, tablet, or smartphone.
