PULLMAN, Wash. – Psychology researchers at Washington State University are seeking people with memory problems to participate in treatment and intervention groups in Lewiston and Spokane.
 
The intervention is intended to help participants compensate for memory impairment and provide support for their care partners, said Maureen Schmitter-Edgecombe, professor of psychology at WSU Pullman.

Eligible participants are 50 years or older and have been experiencing memory problems for a minimum of six months or have been diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment. They also have a spouse or other family member or friend willing to participate.  

Each group will consist of five to seven couples.
 
The intervention will provide participants with memory aids and strategies designed to help them cope with daily living, Schmitter-Edgecombe said. The intervention also will provide group education, socialization and problem solving experiences.
