Would older adults with mild cognitive impairment adhere to and benefit from a structured lifestyle activity intervention to enhance cognition?: a cluster randomized controlled trial

Background: Epidemiologic evidence suggests that cognitive and physical activities are associated with better cognition in late life. The present study was conducted to examine the possible benefits of four structured lifestyle activity interventions and compare their effectiveness in optimizing cognition for older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).; Method and Findings: This was a 12-month […]

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 community-based exercise programme to improve functional ability in people with Alzheimer’s disease: a randomized controlled trial

Rationale: Dementia is a common neurodegenerative condition in older age associated with functional decline across multiple domains. This decline impacts not only on the person with dementia, but also on their informal carers and health and aged care systems. With the number of people with dementia rapidly increasing and few effective treatments, there is now […]

Effects of two different intensities of aerobic exercise on elderly people with mild cognitive impairment: a randomized pilot study

Objective: To evaluate the effect of different intensities of aerobic exercise on elderly people with mild cognitive impairment.; Design: A randomized trial.; Setting: Residential care homes for elderly people.; Subjects: Forty-eight patients were included in the study.; Interventions: The patients were randomized in three groups. Group A performed aerobic exercise at 40% of heart rate […]

Effects of multicomponent exercise on cognitive function in older adults with amnestic mild cognitive impairment: a randomized controlled trial

Background: To examine the effects of a multicomponent exercise program on the cognitive function of older adults with amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI).; Design: Twelve months, randomized controlled trial;; Setting: Community center in Japan;; Participants: Fifty older adults (27 men) with aMCI ranging in age from 65 to 93 years (mean age, 75 years);; Intervention: […]

A new frontier in spaced retrieval memory training for persons with Alzheimer’s disease

The objective of this pilot study was to investigate how a memory training technique called “Spaced Retrieval” (SR) might be effectively applied in helping persons with Alzheimer’s disease improve their recall of recent events. Capitalising on the interdependence among spared and impaired memory systems, it was hypothesised that SR training with support at encoding and […]

Persons with Alzheimer’s disease make phone calls independently using a computer-aided telephone system

This study assessed whether four patients with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease could make independent phone calls via a computer-aided telephone system. The study was carried out according to a non-concurrent multiple baseline design across participants. All participants started with baseline during which the telephone system was not available, and continued with intervention in which […]

An inpatient rehabilitation model of care targeting patients with cognitive impairment

Background: The course and outcomes of hip fracture patients are often complicated by the presence of dementia and delirium, referred to as cognitive impairment (CI), which limits access to in-patient rehabilitation. In response to this concern, members of our team developed and piloted an in-patient rehabilitation model of care (Patient-Centred Rehabilitation Model; PCRM) targeting patients […]
