Jeanie, their mother, had Alzheimer’s. After feeling the devastating impact Alzheimer’s had on their own family, Gillian and Allison determined to urge people in their 50′s and 60’s (when brain skills are still intact) to build a buffer of new brain connections to protect them against memory loss later in life.

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 has since addressed conferences in Atlanta, Edinburgh and New Zealand. She 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 baby boomers and seniors have 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!'
Gillian and Allison have addressed international conferences and their books have sold in 40 countries. Seven Second Memory was a top ten best-seller and the handbook 7-Day Brain Boost Plan is now in its third reprint.
