CST is an evidence based treatment. UK Government NICE guidance on the management of dementia recommend the use of group CST for people with mild to moderate dementia, irrespective of drug treatments. CST treatment involves 14 x 45 minute sessions of themed activities which run over a seven week period, (or once a week if preferred) for up to 6 people with mild to moderate dementia. A 'quality of life' questionnaire is completed by the resident with Debbie before the start of the course and again at the end of the 14 sessions, this shows clearly how CST has helped to improve quality of life and in which areas, such as communication, social interaction, memory etc. Please contact Debbie for more information and how it could benefit your residents.
