Traditions Management Dementia Education Series

What Is Cognitive Stimulation?

According to Fit Minds, "Cognitive Stimulation is an evidence-based intervention that supports what research tells us about the brain’s ability to build resilience and create new neuron pathways."

This month, Lori Horstman, Traditions VP of Cognitive Care, will answer the question, "Is Cognitive Stimulation an effective habit for preventing Dementia?"

"My dad was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia more than ten years ago, and I learned how challenging it was to be a caregiver for a loved one with this disease. At the same time, my mom was dying of metastatic breast cancer, I had twin five-year-olds and was working as an adjunct professor. My brother also died just three years later of Frontal Temporal Dementia. So, I know how important it is to connect with family members who are struggling to understand dementia and the care it requires. I am here to support family and professional caregivers with the tools they need, most notably to meet loved ones and residents right where they are in their mind. Once we identify the type of dementia, and pair that with an understanding of social history, we can provide a truly customized and thoughtful therapeutic approach to caregiving. It is my privilege to be a part of Traditions' Varietas® Memory Care program, truly one of the best in the country."
