Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) for people living with dementia

Developed in the UK by University College London (UCL), CST is an evidence-based group or individual therapy for people with mild to moderate dementia, demonstrating significant benefits to both cognition and quality of life and endorsed by NICE. Sessions aim to actively stimulate and engage people with dementia, whilst providing an optimal learning environment and the social benefits of a group.

The D-Care project has developed FREE online training for care workers and also for family/friends caring for people living with dementia. Part of the training includes assistance in creating a dementia friendly home.

Completed Projects include:

GROWMAT (accessible tourism) and TECHSenior (training in technology)
