The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of treatment strategies and methods as well as a practical decision support, based on the current version of the guideline on memory rehabilitation  and the authors' views. We show that the choice of a method for efficient neuropsychological treatment depends on the type and severity of the memory disorder as well as on the previous therapy experience of the affected person and the defined therapy goal: E.g., what it means to work with implicit 'errorless learning' methods; which form of external memory aids can be used with which patients; that methods for improving memory performance are available for persons with moderate to mild memory disorders; and that PC therapy is also likely to help younger and more mildly affected persons. The aim is also to provide a broad overview of current studies on memory rehabilitation, some with very promising results. However, many questions remain unanswered to date, some of which have been highlighted in this paper with the aim of stimulating future research to enable those affected by memory impairment to achieve the best possible rehabilitation and the greatest possible independence.
