Professional Caregiver

As a professional caregiver, our cognitive stimulation therapy(CST) programming gives you another tool to enhance what you do.

Cognitive stimulation therapy is an evidence-based therapy used with individuals who suffer from dementia. Our cognitive stimulation therapy (CST) programming is specifically designed to be delivered through person-to-person interaction. We believe that an essential element of good programming is that human interaction and so we’ve designed our programs with that in mind.

Our programming is delivered either through a group setting or on a one-to-one basis. In both cases our programs are delivered by a professional caregiver, trained as a Fit Minds Coach. As a Fit Minds Coach, you provide the vital human to human contact.

Each program covers activities and exercises in the five main areas of cognition: language, visual/spatial orientation, memory, critical thinking and computation.

The group programs cover the complete cognitive spectrum from healthy seniors to seniors who suffer from moderate dementia.

The individual program is used to provide a customized and personalized CST program for individuals, and can be tailored to each individual’s level of cognition in various areas.
