  • Occupational therapy and 'rementia'

    Occupational therapy and 'rementia'

    20.04.18 Jackie Pool speaks up for the occupational therapy role in dementia care in the “social life blog” on the Guardian’s Social Care Network. Her focus is on “rementia”, the possible reversal of some dementia symptoms by helping individuals to improve and regain specific functions like making a cup of tea or using a mobile phone. Pool, head of memory care and programming at Sunrise Senior Living, says: “Underlying the practice are the latest developments in neuroscience, which explores how functions can be regained by enabling new links between neurons to work in place of damaged ones. This phenomenon of rewiring the brain is well understood but has not yet been applied widely to dementia care, where it has huge potential to help people in the early stages of the condition.” To read the blog, click HERE
