Dementia prevention programme
Group of minimum 10 people. 14 sessions 1.5 hours each session.
Research shows that in order to have a healthy mind, we need constant stimulation, without it, we can witness a rapid cognitive decline. Research shows that people who don’t stimulate their brain, suffer from some level of cognitive decline.
Dementia prevention group programme is a group activity led by a trained facilitator designed to stimulate the ageing brain and keep it as active as possible.
Who should join: The programme is aimed at people age 65 and over who experience cognitive decline such as but not only: forgetfulness, lack of mental clarity, find it hard to focus, find it hard to plan and execute a plan, unable to concentrate, find it hard to keep up while socialising or find orientation challenging. The person might feel that one or some of these cognitive abilities are changing. Even if you are mildly concerned, you should join- there is no harm in that.
This programme does not support people who were already diagnosed with dementia.
