Wait, what? We have more than one memory system in the brain? You probably thought memory was just one thing – our ability to remember facts and events from our life. But, there’s another kind of memory - habit memory. This memory system is in the part of the brain that stays healthy even with Alzheimer's Disease and related dementias.
The MapHabit System utilizes this healthy part of the brain to help individuals with neurocognitive disorders to live their best possible life.
Anne has an early dementia diagnosis with multiple chronic conditions. She is not fully dependent on a caregiver, but sometimes forgets certain steps of an activity or a task.
For Anne, she is not ready for a full time caregiver, but her quality of life is diminished as she starts doubting her own abilities and avoids interactions because of it.
With MapHabit's patented approach to procedural memory, Anne can choose a map from our library, or make a map on her own or with assistance. Her maps are customized to her specific routines to ensure that she is living her best life without fear of missing a step.
Alfred's dementia diagnosis has progressed and he is relying mostly on his wife, Joan, to help him complete various activities of daily living.
Joan is a retired pediatric nurse, with very little experience caring for an individual with dementia.
With MapHabit's LiveWell Wellness Assessments, Joan is now able to understand Alfred's dementia, abilities, needs, habits and routines. She uses the maps created specifically for Alfred to help her manage his daily routines. This results in fewer struggles and helps her understand Alfred's challenges, allowing them to enjoy the important moments in their life for much longer.
Long-term care placement has always been a concern for many families for a local organization that supports members of their community.
With MapHabit's LiveWell Dementia Training, members' very specific needs and routines are reviewed with our expert team members to create an individualized plan that can help minimize frustrating situations. This content is created directly on the app, which helps improve communication, and the transfer of information. This significantly shortens the onboarding time as support teams rotate, and helps the support partner provide the best possible care for the individual.
The MapHabit System makes it possible to help individuals, their families and their community coordinate routines and habits, prolonging the individual's ability to live safely and more independently in their own home.

Emily has been working with her therapists on her essential daily living skills since she was a child. With binders that contain the task analysis for different skills, and the visual schedules on the white board in the family kitchen, Emily was able to work on her skills independently while living at home with her parents. As she transitions to her postsecondary education, she is now working with her circle of support to make sure that her skills continue to progress, as she learns new academic and vocational skills.
With MapHabit, and together with Emily's parents and therapists, they are able to document the skills that need to be practiced daily and the activities for her day. The white board in her kitchen and the binders of task analysis are now on the MapHabit application, and in the palm of her hand - ready to notify and give her the support that she needs, whenever and wherever she needs it.
As a mother, Carmen always strived for consistency so that her daughter, Gabriela, can learn essential hygiene skills in the supportive environment of their home. Because of Carmen's critical observation of Gabriela's routines and habits, Carmen now knows what signs to look for when Gabriela is distressed and when she needs additional support in the bathroom.
With MapHabit's collaborative tools available for her daughter's circle of support, Carmen was able to share with everyone on Team Gabriela her observations and create a visual map that they can review, including her grandparents who live several states away. When Gabriela's grandparents visit, they are able to provide the same familiar support, giving Carmen the peace of mind to run errands...

Julian was ecstatic when he found out that the organization he has been working with for job training was able to match him with a company.
In preparation for this new role, Julian, his job support, and his new manager have been collaborating together in creating Julian's daily scheduled tasks and his personal time at work.
At work, Julian is able to pull up the task analysis for each activity and view the step-by-step instructions with video demonstrations.
