Visual imagery is a great way to help memorize items for some people. Imagery usually works best with smaller pieces of information. Aim: This article focus on the effectiveness of visual images mnemonic training on memory among Alzheimer’s disease patients. Methods: Pre experimental research design was selected for the present study. Purposive sampling technique was used to recruit 30 subjects. Pre test was conducted by using visual mnemonic rating scale- Alzheimer's Disease scale to assess the level of memory. Visual images mnemonic training was intervened through repeated representation of related subjects such as figures of body parts, photos, phone numbers, letters and significant places which are displayed in the chart for the duration of 30-40 minutes per day for 10 days. The mean values of all the 19 posttest scores were considered as one post test value. Results: The estimated paired ‘t’ test value showed statistical significance in all areas of memory like body parts t=7.07, significant places t=5.12 and address t=9.69 among Alzheimer’s disease patients. Memory has been enhanced after the treatment of visual images mnemonic training among Alzheimer’s disease patients.
