The Memory Link Program from Baycrest is an innovative one that is designed to assist in situations where there has been an event that has caused severe damage to the brain structure.

The program makes use of a mobile device to relay audio messages, which can include familiar verses from the Bible, songs or prayers to help strengthen a person's day-to-day memory. This rehabilitative program is ideal for anyone over the age of 20, but there is particular appeal for seniors citizens who are suffering from dementia. It has been described that even those "who have not communicated for a long time still enjoy singing along with the hymns and choruses and mouthing the words of their favorite scriptures," bringing people back to better times in their lives.
