DEMENTIA THERAPY PROGRAM
PROGRESS & IMPROVEMENTS
People Also Ask:
iKare Dementia Therapy uses over 80 activities to help people with dementia retain cognition (the ability to think and remember), gross motor, fine motor, and sensory functions.
These activities include exercises developed to stimulate cognition, such as art therapy or puzzles, and various physical activities that utilize coordination and movement to stimulate gross-motor and fine-motor functions. Sensory stimulations, using such tools as color cards and scent samples, also provide therapeutic benefits, especially for people with advanced dementia.
Each therapy program is customized and facilitated by iKare Nurse and Therapist in a one-to-one session at home.
iKare Dementia Therapy can help people living with dementia in several ways. Here are some of the ways that dementia therapy can be beneficial:
1. Improve cognitive function: Dementia Therapy includes cognitive stimulation exercises to improve memory, language, and problem-solving skills. These exercises help slow the disease’s progression and improve cognitive function.
2. Reduce symptoms: Dementia Therapy help to reduce symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and agitation, which are common in people with dementia. Therapy helps people with dementia to cope with their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
3. Support caregivers: Dementia Therapy helps people with dementia improve social interaction, sleep, and overall well-being, which can bring peace of mind to caregivers. By supporting their loved ones’ improvement, caregivers can also regain a sense of control over their own lives, knowing they are positively impacting their loved ones’ health.
4. Improve the quality of life: Ultimately, dementia therapy helps to improve the overall quality of life for people with dementia and their caregivers. By providing cognitive stimulation, reducing symptoms, increasing social engagement, and providing support for caregivers, dementia therapy helps people with dementia to maintain their independence, improve their mood, and enhance their overall well-being.
Each Dementia Therapy program is personalized to the individual conditions and needs based on the assessment by iKare Nurse Therapy Supervisor. The therapy recipient’s history, area of interest, passion, likes and dislikes, dementia condition, cultural factors, and family feedback will all be weighed to design the optimal therapy program.
Research has shown that providing stimulation for people with dementia help slow down the disease’s progression and improve the overall quality of life.
Stimulation can be provided through activities that engage the brain and encourage social interaction, physical movement, and cognitive stimulation. These activities help stimulate the brain and improve cognitive function while providing a sense of purpose and enjoyment for the person with dementia. It also helps to reduce symptoms such as agitation, anxiety, and depression, which are common in people with dementia.
Dementia is a progressive disease that affects the brain. Delaying intervention allows the disease to progress further, causing more severe symptoms and a decline in cognitive function.
For example, suppose a person with dementia is experiencing behavioral symptoms such as agitation or aggression. In that case, delaying intervention can make it more challenging to manage these symptoms and may require more aggressive interventions such as medication or hospitalization.
Delaying intervention also increases the burden on caregivers and makes it more challenging to provide adequate care.

iKare has been a great help to my elderly mother. The (Dementia) therapy sessions ENERGISE her, and she enjoys talking and reminiscing with her therapist. This stimulus is good for her.
My Mother was diagnosed with Dementia and had rejected regular treatments. However, this has now CHANGED for the better after iKare therapy sessions were introduced to her. My Mother is now enjoying and looking forward to every session with the interesting activities that have improve her cognitive condition. This will not happen in such a short period without the professional, caring and supportive efforts from Diana, Sandy and Sim who are constantly ensuring the most appropriate activities for my Mother’s progress. Thank you.
