JUSTO-HENRIQUES, Susana I  e  CARVALHO, Janessa O.. Protocol of a randomised controlled trial of home-based cognitive stimulation in cognitively impaired older adults. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2021, vol.17, n.1, pp. 66-70. ISSN 1808-5687.

OBJECTIVE: Cognitive stimulation (CS) is a non-pharmacological therapy with good support for its ability to limit the progression of cognitive decline in elderly people with neurocognitive disorders (NCD) by stimulating cognitive function. METHOD:We detail the structure and content of an intervention protocol in the older adults with NCD, based on individualized home-based CS. RESULTS: The individualized intervention protocol based on CS is outlined and comprised of a repeatable 8-session basis scheme, with a weekly frequency and lasting approximately 45 minutes per session, administered by trained therapists. CONCLUSIONS: The one-on-one CS program can serve as a guide for future dissemination, with content that is easy to understand and implement, with relevant implications for clinical practice and NCD research. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: There is evidence that this protocol has been successful in improving cognition and quality of life in NCD samples in Portugal; thus future dissemination of this protocol across other cognitive samples would have direct benefits to patients and offer additional treatment options for clinicians.
