Using Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) to create an engaging learning experience to improve the memory, cognitive thinking and communication skills of those living with dementia in order to increase their quality of life.
About the project
Memory Matters’ App incorporates Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) – the only evidence-based psychosocial therapy available for dementia and recommended by the UK’s National Institute of Health and Care Excellence as a treatment for mild to moderate dementia.
CST is a fun and interactive learning experience that will help with your memory, cognitive thinking and communication skills and is particularly effective with language skills and comprehension and has also shown to increase quality of life. You will learn through sounds, word association, quiz and celebration, current affairs number games and more! You can use the app independently or with your carer or family and friends or as a professional working in a caring environment.
The App is unique as Memory Matters have partnered with Memory Tracks, an organisation who help people with dementia through music which helps stimulate memory, manage agitation, assist with care, and support important daily routines through song-task association.
