Do you still need a 2022 Day Planner?! This post is for you!

Happy almost 2022 everyone!  Do you still need a 2022 paper day planner?! The HABIT Memory Support System Day Planner is now available to the public. In HABIT, we talk about our Memory Support System (MSS) or HABIT Day Planner as the backbone of our program, which is specifically designed for people diagnosed with a memory disorder called Mild Cognitive Impairment. You can learn more about MCI in our posts here and here.  Our research shows us that the MSS is helpful in improving daily functioning and confidence in those with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and helps improve mood and mitigate the increasing burden that can develop over time in partners of those with MCI.

We’ve also written here about research on the memory advantage of using paper planners vs. technology as another reason we’ve stuck primarily to a paper Planner system. But, we’ve also cautioned here that some of our experience and research suggests that training on using the HABIT Planner is necessary for success, at least for those with a memory disorder such as MCI.

That said—you spoke and we listened!  Many of you spoke up in the comments section of our posts above that you’d like to give this paper planner system a try even if there is not training to go along with it. So, we're excited to make that happen!  You can purchase your set directly from the Mayo Store at this link. I love my Planner and I look forward to hearing more about how you all use your planners if you decide to give it a try!

Happy new year everyone and happy planning!

How many of these does someone need for an entire year?

The link takes you to the set that covers the year. So, one set has everything you need for a year.

So, I would assume then that one gets a set of 12- one for each month? Thanks for clarifying.

Very sad. Mayo does not ship to Colorado and about seven other states.

That's correct!

Ya know, Mayo Clinic COULD video record the MSS sessions that teach how to use the organizer/planner so we who buy it can learn how to use it properly. Then we could stream it at a time convenient to us. What?

Is the MSS Day Planner still available for purchase? Thank you for your reply.

Exactly! We've discussed this option and the best way to follow through. Believe me we will post it here if that becomes available.
