Spaced Retrieval

Spaced Retrieval (SR) is an evidence-based memory intervention that gives individuals practice at successfully recalling information over progressively longer intervals of time. SR utilizes remaining strengths and abilities to enable persons with dementia to learn new procedures to overcome daily challenges, thereby alleviating the symptoms of dementia and reducing caregiver burden. Pioneering research by Dr. Camp and his colleagues forms the basis for two days of intensive training with a major emphasis on visual demonstrations and hands-on exercises to address a wide range of specific challenges.


Resident Volunteers

Within every residential community is a potential corps of volunteers. Based on research that focused on training persons with early stage dementia to serve as activity leaders, this half-day presentation provides practical information and ideas for establishing residential communities in which each individual is provided with opportunities to interact socially, pursue personal interests, and use skills and talents.


Hiding the Stranger in the Mirror

This entertaining presentation by Dr. Camp is based on his book by the same title. The presentation features a series of case studies compiled by Dr. Camp through decades of applied research and problem-solving “in the trenches.” Professionals and family caregivers will find this presentation useful and empowering.
