WA researchers launch a new non-drug treatment that could help thousands of dementia sufferers.
Alzheimer’s Innovation CEO John Ashby facilitating the Ashby Memory Method program with one of the Alzheimer’s Australia pilot study participants living with dementia. He explained that the methods success was based on the brains ability to adapt through cognitive training. “With this program, we could see actual improvements in the quality of life with dementia and a slowing of a person’s decline for a longer period.” The individualised program was trialled by Alzheimer’s Australia for 12 months as part of a pilot study in 2012, where participants with dementia undertook the personalized paper based activities twice a week with a support worker.
