Cognitive impairment

We develop new non-pharmacological interventions to improve the quality of life of elderly people with cognitive impairment, both in the residential environment and in the community.

Our innovations include reminiscence therapy, group dynamics with professional and peer support; new psychosocial techniques for the stimulation of memory, emotions and personal relations. Our focus turns interventions into meaningful and motivating experiences for people with cognitive impairment.

The FSiE has designed and tested different tools, methods and materials which facilitate carrying out our interventions by professionals, carers, and sometimes the people with cognitive impairment. All these resources are supported by pilot projects which have involved the participation of the beneficiaries in their development and evaluation.
