Cognitive stimulation session for dementia sufferers in Devon

Slowing cognitive decline

The specialist treatments we use are recommended by the NHS and aim to delay cognitive decline and maintain an individual’s independence.

Specialist Clinical Team

The organisation is led by registered healthcare professionals, who clinically assess every client and train our specialist staff

Measurable Benefits

Every individual has a free clinical assessment and their mental health is measured at every visit to prove delayed deterioration and improved engagement. We only use validated NHS tools.

Maintaining Independence

Our aim is to delay the need for more complex expensive care. The research shows that if you engage with a specialist service as soon as possible, an individual will remain independent and at home for longer than if they had no contact with a specialist organisation.

    Read about how Mike came to The Ness Care Group, the therapy he has been receiving, and how our Active Minds sessions have not only helped with his social confidence and mood, but also allowed him to retain his independence.

    Mike reached out to us soon after he was diagnosed with dementia. He was living on his own and wanted to maintain his independence and his cognitive function. Mike was in his early 70’s a recently retired accountant, with an active life but he knew that he wasn’t pushing his memory.

    Our Active Minds (AM) service was designed for individuals living with mild to moderate memory loss. It uses a therapy called Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) to maintain an individual’s memory, to delay the progression of Alzheimer’s and other similar dementia diagnosis.

    Mike started joining a small group session every Wednesday morning. The group consisted of 4 people and a specialist facilitator each week they would talk, discuss topics of interest and the facilitator would prepare a carefully targeted stimulating session that pushed their minds through words, numbers, reminiscence or other systems. Each session lasted around 2 hours and there was lots of laughter, engagement and fun. Mike engaged really well and family/friends noticed an immediate increase in his language, his social confidence and his mood.

    A year later Mike now attends for 2 sessions a week. They are the highlight of his week and he continues to communicate well. We have been measuring Mike from the moment he started with us and each week the facilitator has taken a set of measures to gage his communication, his memory, his executive function, happiness, movement and social engagement. What has been so amazing over the year is that in each of the measured fields Mike has remained completely stable we have noted no decline in his memory or communication. Probably more importantly he continues to remain living alone, independent and even moved house during the year (a stressful process for even the most mentally & physically well).

    The group he joined on a Wednesday morning over a year ago have become good friends and support each other through advice, emotional support and the laughter they share in the sessions. Mike is why we run Active Minds, he shows us that we can delay decline, we can continue to remain independent and we can have a full social life!
