For those with mild cognitive impairment and a good level of self-awareness in the early stages of dementia, CBT can help people with dementia reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. For the ones with more progressive impairment, CBT can still help with behaviour modification, helping build a sense of confidence and improve the quality of life of the person as well as others involved. In addition to mental well-being, CBT has also been shown to improve immune system functioning and reduce inflammation.
CBT sessions are offered by our therapists who charge from 750 to 1000 Rupees per session which can happen weekly or fortnightly. The person with dementia would be given a mental or behavioural task as part of homework to apply in their life after each session.
