The cognitive management of daily life activities in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease

Neuropsychological Rehabilitation

Author: Adam, S., Van der Linden, M., Juillerat, A.C., Salmon, E.
Year: 2000
Type: Journal Article

Abstract:

This article describes the general organisation of the recently-created day care centre at the University Hospital of Li├Ęge. The authors present the assessment and intervention programme which was conducted in this day care centre in order to reduce the generalised apathy and depressed mood observed in a 70-year-old Alzheimer patient (AM). This programme aimed at restoring a leisure activity (knitting) at home by proposing several adaptations designed to minimise the impact of AM's cognitive deficits on knitting activity. While an aggravation of her memory deficits was observed, the intervention significantly decreased AM's apathy and depressed mood as well as her husband's burden.
