Memory Nurture Facilitators aim to assist people adapt to changes in cognition as well as helping family members cope with dementia related changes and personal life events. Intervention and support in familiar home surroundings can delay the need for transition to longer term care in an aged care facility.
We believe the Ashby Memory Method is a valuable part of cognitive, physical , emotional, social and multi-sensory stimulation for people with dementia. Other cognitive stimulation techniques and approaches such as music therapy including singing and creative expression have shown benefit with wonderful responses. Engaging in past hobbies, physical activity, walking as well as doing familiar enjoyable household activities such as watering plants, peeling vegetables and folding washing have shown benefit for people with dementia as well as for people who have had a stroke or have Parkinson’s disease.
