Cognitive stimulation - CBT Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive stimulation involves taking part in activities and exercises that are designed to improve your memory, problem-solving skills and language ability. .
Behavioural therapy - CBT Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Behavioural therapy is used to help treat many of the behavioural problems that are associated with dementia, such as depression, aggression and delusional thinking.
Behavioural therapy may already be provided by a carer, who can be a trained friend, relative or an employed carer normally supervised by a health professional.
Behavioural therapy uses a problem-solving approach where possible motivations and reasons for troublesome behaviour are identified. Different strategies are adopted to try to change that behaviour. A person for example with dementia may have a history of wandering out of their home or care centre because they feel agitated, restless or anxious. Therefore, a game plan that involves revitalising them to take part in regular physical exercise may lessen their restlessness, never mind "the renewing warmth of the sunshine"
