Bespoke One to One Interventions for people living with dementia
Group activities don't suit everyone, and for some people it can be helpful to try a range of activities and therapies to bring about wellbeing, quality of life, and better understanding and management of the wide range of symptoms that can be experienced by people with a dementia. Yoga, shiatsu, counselling, speech & language therapy, and finding a path through services offered by the NHS or Social Services, to name but a few ways For Brian can support you.
Rehabilitation through yoga involves developing close attention to sensation in the body, and repetition of movements in slow and gentle manner to enable neuroplasticity, improved flexibility and coordination. Neuroplasticity takes place in everyone throughout life, but only where skills are repeatedly used and practiced, and are done so in a way that is enjoyable, that engages the person actively in the process, and manages an individual's energy levels in order to avoid fatigue. Focusing on being ‘in the moment’ has been shown to reduce anxiety, depression, and stress, which are common symptoms for people living with cognitive impairment. Watch the video of
