Quality of life and Alzheimer’s disease: The influence of participation in a rehabilitation center

Quality of life is seldom explored in evaluations of therapeutic interventions in Alzheimer’s disease. Objective: To verify whether participation in a cognitive and functional rehabilitation program improves quality of life (QOL) among Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients. Methods: 19 AD patients participated in this study, 12 of whom attended 24 multi-professional intervention sessions—the experimental group—whereas the […]

Empowering older people with early dementia and family caregivers: A participatory action research study

Background: The increase in the number of people suffering from dementia is of increasing global concern. A survey on the living conditions of the elderly in a Japanese rural community revealed a high prevalence of early dementia and the necessity for interventions not only for the elderly with early dementia but also for their families. […]

Goal-oriented cognitive rehabilitation for an individual with mild cognitive impairment: Behavioural and neuroimaging outcomes

An individual, goal-oriented cognitive rehabilitation intervention was conducted with AB, a 77-year-old woman with MCI. Outcomes were evaluated using a client-centred measure of goal achievement and an experimental associative learning task testing a skill practised in the intervention. Pre- and post-intervention fMRI scans were compared to examine changes in brain activation. Following intervention, AB showed […]

Goal-setting in cognitive rehabilitation for people with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease

This article draws upon findings from a recent randomized controlled trial of cognitive rehabilitation to consider the extent to which people with early-stage Alzheimer’s Disease (n = 69) were able to identify individual rehabilitation goals, and what kinds of goals were important to them. For those assigned to receive cognitive rehabilitation (n = 22), we […]

A randomized cross-over controlled study on cognitive rehabilitation of instrumental activities of daily living in alzheimer disease

Objective: The goal of the study was to investigate the effectiveness of a memory rehabilitation program to re-learn instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) in patients with Alzheimer disease (AD). Design: This was a 6-month block-randomized cross-over controlled study. Setting: All evaluation and training sessions were performed at each patient’s home. Participants: Twenty participants with […]

Cognitive rehabilitation multi-family group intervention for individuals with mild cognitive impairment and their care-partners

There is increasing need for early, pro-active programs that can delay dementia diagnosis and enhance well-being of individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and their care-partners (i.e., care-dyads). This randomized controlled trial evaluated the efficacy of a combined cognitive rehabilitation and multi-family group treatment (CR-MFG) that was designed to facilitate adoption of newly learned cognitive […]

Efficacy of a cognitive training programme for mild cognitive impairment: Results of a randomised controlled study

This study aimed to determine the efficacy of cognitive training in a 10-week randomised controlled study involving 22 individuals presenting with mild cognitive impairment of the amnestic type (MCI-A). Participants in the experimental group (n = 11) learned face–name associations using a paradigm combining errorless (EL) learning and spaced retrieval (SR) whereas participants in the […]

Computerised cognitive training for older persons with mild cognitive impairment: A pilot study using a randomised controlled trial design

The results of a pilot randomised controlled trial of computerised cognitive training in older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) are reported. Participants (N = 25) were randomised into either the treatment or waitlist training groups. Sixteen participants completed the 30-session computerised cognitive training program using exercises that target a range of cognitive functions including […]
