Cognitive Strategies To Support Independence
In this session, we will be discussing the importance of maintaining healthy cognitive function in order to prevent an overall deterioration in well-being. We will talk about the main components of cognition, how to identify a deterioration in ‘thinking skills’ (i.e Memory) and how to incorporate a rehabilitative approach into everyday activities. Simple strategies often make a huge difference to being able to live independently and we will be focussing on these in this session.
This session will be useful to staff working with clients with dementia, stroke, acquired brain injury, Parkinsons or any neurological condition which affects our ‘thinking and remembering skills’. Attendees will leave with a ‘toolkit’ of strategies to help them help their clients, which will be of great therapeutic benefit to all.
