Cognitive Wellness Programme
Samvedna's Cognitive Wellness Program is a well-structured therapy for the engagement of elderly. It combines a wide range of activities that are known to provide mental and physical stimulation. Such mental activity on a regular basis is known to slow down the progression of dementia.
CWP is based on Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST), which an internationally recognised therapy. At Samvedna, we have made our own modules that are modified to suit the Indian cultural context.
Research shows that such therapies do show an improvement in cognition, language and visuospatial skills. More importantly is a fun way for the elderly to improve their happiness levels and enjoy a better quality of life.
We can see the positive effect of our program as the elderly are happier and are able to communicate with more ease. We have noticed that they form friendship and relationships in this opportunity of socializing. Sometimes, we also observe improvements in their orientation and short term memory.
