Services | Cognitive Therapeutics Method™

Maintain Brain Health through Fun Activities and Lifestyle Improvements

As we age, it’s important to keep our brains active and healthy, just like our bodies. The Cognitive Therapeutics Method was developed by researchers at Home Care Assistance, and offers enjoyable activities and positive lifestyle support with varying levels of intensity to keep individuals mentally engaged, challenged and overall healthy. The goal of the program is not to assess the cognitive abilities of the client, but rather to provide a structured but enjoyable method to engage the mind and improve quality of life. We understand that individuals have different areas of interests and strengths, and thus we are able to personalize and accommodate activities to reflect preferences.

Not only can Home Care Assistance clients enjoy these activities through our trained caregivers, but individuals who do not need home care services can also participate in the Cognitive Therapeutics Method by working with our Cognitive Interventionists, who are trained to provide useful and engaging one-on-one activities.

Holistic Approach to Cognitive Engagement Developed by Experts

Participating in Cognitive Therapeutics Method activities may feel like engaging in a hobby or playing games because they are fun, but there is science behind the development of the program. Our cognitive activities target the five cognitive domains that impact overall cognitive functioning, including memory, executive functioning, attention, language and visual-spatial perception.

The Cognitive Therapeutics Method™ engages the primary five cognitive domains.

Cognitive Therapeutics - Memory - Executive Functioning - Attention - Visual-Spatial Perception - Language

We also engage non-cognitive domains that have been suggested by research to have positive impact on overall functioning, including coping techniques, sensory stimulation, social engagement, exercise, recreation and brain-healthy diet.
