Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale Offers Activities-Based Program to Delay Cognitive Decline
Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale offers proprietary Cognitive Therapeutics Method™, a cognitive activities program based on cutting-edge scientific research, to improve care for clients
(Fort Lauderdale, FL – October 6, 2016) Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale, the leading agency for in-home senior care, is proud to be the exclusive provider of the Cognitive Therapeutics Method™ (CTM). CTM is an activity-based cognitive intervention program, designed to delay the onset of new symptoms and the progression of existing symptoms in individuals with mild to moderate dementia. Based on cutting-edge scientific research and a National Institutes of Health report suggesting that mental stimulation is associated with slower cognitive decline, CTM currently includes over 20 activities targeting the five primary cognitive domains: executive functioning, memory, visual-spatial perception, attention and language.
“The Cognitive Therapeutics Method is an exclusive, proprietary program that we offer to clients in order to foster and promote brain health,” said Manpreet Dhalla, Owner/President of Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale. “Our clients have loved the program and enjoy doing the activities with our caregivers, especially when there is ‘down-time’. As a society, we keep hearing how important it is for aging adults to stay mentally active with games like Sudoku and crossword puzzles. CTM is in line with this thinking, but is interactive and based on science.”
Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale’s caregivers are trained in CTM so that clients receive one-on-one mental stimulation as well as support with basic care and activities of daily living, thereby improving overall quality of life. Having a caregiver trained in CTM offers a unique alternative to clinics and residential centers, in which there are a small number of staff members caring for many patients and in which services involving personalized cognitive rehabilitation are limited or nonexistent. Providing professional care within the home not only allows clients to maintain their privacy but also supports psychological and emotional well-being.
Many home care companies claim that they are dementia experts or that their caregivers are trained to provide premier dementia care. While these caregivers do typically understand the symptoms of dementia and how to manage difficult behaviors associated with the disease, they do not have the training or expertise to cognitively engage clients and delay the onset of new symptoms. Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale’s caregivers trained in CTM are equipped to not only help slow cognitive decline among clients, but also to help delay the onset of symptoms.
