Have you had a stroke?

Are you having problems with your memory?

Many people notice memory difficulties after having a stroke.

The Memory-SuSTAIN study at La Trobe University is looking at ways of regaining memory skills after a stroke, and maintaining them over time.

Participants are offered a free memory skills rehabilitation program. The next Memory Group Program starts on 14 October 2020, and further planned in 2021.

Each week for six weeks, a 2-hour group session is held online via Zoom with a qualified neuropsychologist. After finishing the memory group, participants receive either:

  • extra booster sessions with a clinician using Zoom
  • or SMS/email reminders of helpful memory strategies
  • or no further treatment (as current usual practice).

Participants also complete a series of assessments to measure the effect of these additional treatments on everyday memory. Participants receive a report at the end of the study describing the results.
