Memory UNIT

Due to the increase of people diagnosed as having a mild cognitive impairment or an early detection of dementia development, we felt the need to create differentiated specialised assistance in our nursing home.

Where would I have left it…?, What was its name…?, Why did I come here…?, Have I already taken my medicines…?, What do I have to buy…?, What was the number…? 

THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO:

  • Have constant memory lapses when doing daily life activities
  • Are frequently absent-minded and they usually make mistakes
  • Do not remember present-day memories, but they do remember those which happened many years ago
  • Are frequently absent-minded and they usually make mistakes
  • Are worry because their memory cannot work properly and they cannot remember things
  • Suffer from mild cognitive impairment as they used to[/trx_list_item]

WHAT IS ITS PURPOSE:

  • Memory training is similar to physical exercise: the more we do it, the better and faster we react in order to adapt to different situations.
  • Guided activity for reduced groups (maximum 6 people) demands an effort in both concentration and attention. Therefore, it improves skills to deal with memory lapses/mistakes.

HOW WE DO IT:

  • Our groups are reduced (maximum 6 people)
  • We have two sessions a week
  • We train immediate, recent and work memory
  • There are intense sessions and a fast changing of activities so that attention and concentration can be improved.
  • We have our own method. It has been developing for more than 10 years of experience dealing with the intervention of memory problems.
  • We tell our patients what is going on with their memory and why lapses/mistakes happen. We also inform their relatives about it.

“Memory increases by using it and exploiting it. In addition, the people who join us have a reason to leave their house and take part in a social activity which is clearly profitable and satisfactory for them.”
