Project Title: Exploring the benefits of Cognitive Stimulation Therapy as a tool for chronic disease self-management for Persons Living With Dementia
This project aims to implement a group-based therapy that will be offered to those with mild to moderate dementia in order to provide cognitive health benefits that may improve self-efficacy of chronic disease self-management. The project goal is to provide innovation in the field of dementia self-management that will be assessed through a variety of qualitative standardized rating scales at both pre- and post-intervention with participants. By providing early intervention that is known to improve cognitive health, we hope to see improved self-management skills and hope of those living with dementia.
