Vacenti Concierge Alison Bredin is talking about our program Active Minds, offered through Servizi Premium Services and available at all our Homes in Queensland. Active Minds brings residents together in a relaxed, social setting each Wednesday and Friday at Portofino, Hamilton.
Proving that laughter is the best medicine, Active Minds is a fun-filled hour designed to stimulate the brain, release feel-good hormones, and provide participants with a sense of achievement as they master various challenges. Our Residents at Portofino love the activities and games offered during their Active Minds sessions.
The Active Minds format is based on an evidence-based, non-drug, group therapy approach known as Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST).
Recent studies show CST can improve a person’s quality of life, including people living with mild to moderate dementia.
The activities are designed to build upon everyone’s strengths and provide them with stimulus across four domains: cognitive, emotional, social, and physical.
We have a large collection of games and activities for our trained team to engage with residents. Over a 6-to-8-week period, our team noticed improvement in the resident’s social skills, hand dexterity and wellbeing.
