Therapies and monitoring

I organize residents into small homogeneous groups based on their cognitive status and the specific psychological needs of each person. In group psychostimulation therapies, areas such as orientation, memory, attention, praxis, gnosis, calculation, language, emotions, etc. are worked on. The difficulty of each exercise is adjusted to the capabilities and functional status of each resident. Stimulating the person's cognition is intended to maintain or prevent the loss of their still preserved abilities.

Cognitive therapy: It is one of the therapies that arouses the greatest interest in our residents. They see each session as a new opportunity to demonstrate their skills and the exercises are presented as new challenges. They exercise their attention, perception, memory, language, orientation, mathematical calculation, reading or psychomotricity. The activities revolve around aspects of their life experience, their families, their youth work, the places where they have lived. Thus, the activity becomes a moment of dignity in their own lives and encourages the exchange of experiences among all participants.

On the other hand, it is common for dependent elderly people to have more difficulties in using their cognitive abilities and, in the advanced stages of dementia, the performance of basic activities of daily life can be greatly altered or impeded.

For this reason, I focus on proposing individual or group sensory stimulation therapies in which different tools are used such as manipulative materials, sensory stimuli, music therapy, etc.
