Once the CHL assessment has been completed, the Cognitive Stimulation Therapy can begin.
This 1 to 1 program provides an opportunity for clients to engage in meaningful communication, learn coping skills and participate in a program that supports orientation, reasoning and recall.
The program supports a client’s strengths and abilities and capitalizes on personal history and interests.
The Memory Matters program typically consists of two sessions per week for twelve weeks.
Clients wishing to continue (beyond 12 weeks) may do so or they may reduce the number of hours to a maintenance level.
Outcomes noted include:
- increased sense of happiness and self-confidence,
- improved communication,
- increased motivation
- and enhanced memory.
