Cognitive Stimulation Therapy

Invitation to Participate in Online Brain Fitness with LiveWell Dementia Specialists  

Cognitive Stimulation Therapy for Mild to Moderate Dementia

 

You are invited to participate in Online Brain Fitness with LiveWell Dementia Specialists. Online Brain Fitness is a virtual adaptation of Cognitive Stimulation Therapy, which helps to improve memory, language and thinking through thought-provoking and light-hearted activities that give your brain a mental ‘workout’.

Activities take place in an online group. The group includes 5-8 people with mild to moderate cognitive impairment or dementia. Two LiveWell staff lead the group. The group meets twice a week for 7 weeks (14 sessions total). Each session lasts 45 to 60 minutes.

Sessions start with introductions and include one main activity each session. Activities include discussions of current affairs, famous people, word games, and many opportunities to be creative.

Activities are adapted to the interests and abilities of the group and are intended to encourage enjoyable conversations and stimulating discussions.
