"Cognitive Stimulation Group – ‘It makes me Happy’!"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Intellectual Developmental Disabilities /Learning Disability Services – Community (City)

(as other),

Summerwood Day Centre, Clifton for service users with learning disabilities. (IDD). Autumn 2015

The group is similar to the Memory Clinic concept used for people with dementia to promote interaction, aid reality orientation and memory recall. Ten sessions of cognitive stimulation therapy was offered by Occupational Therapists. The Involvement Team supported staff to capture feedback at the end of the sessions.

The group produced some picture feedback to show us what they thought about the group. Some chose to draw group members whilst one member wrote down what she enjoyed most including throwing a ball.
