Cognitive Stimulation Therapy

Cognitive Stimulation Therapy, CST, is an evidence-based group intervention for people with mild to moderate dementia.

Usually a group of up to ten people meet once or twice a week for 14 weeks. Your coordinator will plan themed activities that aim to provide stimulation for thinking, concentration and memory. Activities can include number games, creativity and categorising.

Research evidence suggests that CST can benefit cognitive function, quality of life, well-being, communication and social interaction. CST has also been recommended by the NICE SCIE Guidelines (2006) for all individuals with mild-moderate dementia. You can read more about CST at www.cstdementia.com

The Alzheimer Society of Ireland recently trained a number of coordinators to run CST groups.

Our Coordinators are now planning CST groups at the following locations:
