THE MEMORY SISTERSFounders of the Memory Foundation and the Brainfit® system
The Memory Sisters are teacher Gillian Eadie and researcher Dr Allison Lamont, founders of the Memory Foundation. The Memory Foundation develops key research into memory improvement tools that build brain resilience and reduce the effects of memory loss.
Inspired by their mother’s fight with Alzheimer’s disease, both Allison and Gillian wanted to find effective ways to preserve and improve memory. In her PhD research, Allison identified the six types of memory skill that are critical for productivity and independent living into older age. Using her skills as a teacher, Gillian has developed this ground-breaking work into the Memory Foundation’s proven memory improvement system – Brainfit®.

In 2008, Dr Allison Lamont, PhD, published her ground-breaking research into age-related memory loss. There was world-wide interest in her findings and she took this to conferences in Atlanta, Edinburgh and New Zealand. Allison identified six key areas of memory skills that were pivotal in maintaining a confident, active and independent lifestyle in later life and it is these that form the basis of the Memory.Foundation’s brain tools. This knowledge needs to be shared!
I am committed to ensuring that everyone has all the information and knowledge they need about memory and the brain.
Too many of my friends have parents and relatives who are suffering the consequences of memory loss. It is a tragedy to see people losing their jobs, losing interest and unable to manage their own lives. This does not have to happen to you!
Your memory is a living part of you that can grow and expand to meet the demands you make of it.
Now is the time to build your memory resistance, the ‘cognitive reserve‘ you need to have as a buffer against forgetting and other signs of memory loss that occur without intervention.
Just as you know you need to keep physically fit to be healthy, so your brain needs exercise, too.
