Research shows that cognitive therapy with human interaction can lead to substantial benefits in functioning and can slow the development of certain diseases, thereby increasing your loved one’s ability to function for an extended period of time. For example, although science has yet to find a cure for Alzheimer’s, there is evidence that in the early stages the brain is still capable of making new connections to replace the ones that have been lost. Active Minds™ cognitive training can help generate and maintain these new connections.

This is what Jocelyn Macdonald, franchise owner of Premier Homecare Services Vancouver Westside, a Certified Cognitive Coach and a Registered Dietician says about the success of the program, “we are seeing marked improvements in client behaviours, such as conversing more clearly on the telephone with less trouble word finding, and being more confident to join others for meals and activities in a retirement facility”. Also, the specialized caregivers trained to carry out the Active Minds™ sessions report that the program adds much more meaning and purpose to their time with their clients, and gives a shared sense of achievement.
