“Regular use of CST encourages individuals to higher levels of mental activity thereby reducing their risk of developing dementia.” Gates & Valenzuela, 2010

“CST can be used to stabilize or even improve the cognitive functioning of individuals suffering from mild Alzheimer’s disease.” Bottino et al, 2005; Matsuda et al 2010

Group sessions

If you care for people with memory loss or Alzheimer’s, you may already be aware of the benefits of group settings. Group content is designed for independent seniors or those in assisted living or memory care communities.

In the United Kingdom, their national health guidelines mandate group cognitive stimulation. “People with mild / moderate dementia of all types should be given the opportunity to participate in a structured group cognitive stimulation programme. This should be delivered irrespective of any anti-dementia drug received by the person with dementia.” -The UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, Guideline 42

Our mental fitness subscription content is designed for a wide variety of people — independent seniors as well as those in assisted living or memory care communities.

“I’ve had the opportunity to see Fit Minds programs in action from the very start, I was impressed with the difference the Fit Minds programs made in the lives of my residents when I was the general manager at Portobello Manor. I remember with one family in particular, the improvement of her memory and the ability to interact with her kids had a huge impact on the family relationships.”
