Answer preview

Patients with such disorders have difficulty with daily life activities because they lack episodic memory and an awareness of self. Lucy’s autobiographical memory seems to function better appropriately for at least a day, as she can maintain a sense of continuity and recall events before her accident. However, her memory seems to need improvement. Patients with such disorders are treated through learning methods involving implicit memory that focuses heavily on repetition and practice (Cuncic, 2019). For instance, Henry shows Lucy a daily video about her memory loss and updates her about everything she has forgotten.
