Our Active Minds Programme
Who is it for?
Our online individual active minds programme is based on the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommended model Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) and is ideal for those living with mild to moderate dementia and other forms of cognitive decline.
What is it?
Cognitive Stimulation Therapy is a recognised treatment for those with mild to moderate dementia. It was designed following extensive evaluation of research evidence and is recommended as an evidence-based treatment for those living with dementia.
It aims to improve an individual’s mental agility, communication and promote wellbeing. Our programme has been developed to be delivered online using simple video technology. Each session is 1:1 which produces a strong, supporting and trusting relationship between the coach and the person with cognitive impairment.
How does it work?
The programme is effective and enjoyable. The coach uses a framework of activities designed to benefit different parts of the mind, from spatial awareness to language. The activities include targeted conversation, cultural discussions, reminiscence therapy and various memory games and physical games which are personally-tailored to the individual. Those taking part will exercise their memory and social skills, while enjoying a therapeutic and meaningful experience.
“Mum enjoyed the interaction with the coach and soon built up a fantastic rapport with her. The sessions were varied and diverse; with lots to talk and think about. Mum described that it felt like her coach Jayne was actually there in the room with her.”
– Nic Shaw
