Part Three of the Healthy Longevity Webinar Series, sponsored by Home Care Assistance
There is significant evidence that cognitive decline can be delayed and quality of life improved by engaging older adults with dementia in activities that continue to exercise mental faculties. Cognitive interventions are easy to learn and don’t cause adverse effects, which are often associated with medications. This webinar covers activities designed to help individuals with retention and improvement of cognitive and sensory abilities throughout the course of Alzheimer’s disease. Methods include general use of cognitive games and puzzles, passive sensory stimulation, and direct cognitive training. This session will also present various cognitive and sensory strategies that can be implemented by general care providers or staff who work regularly with clients with dementia.
