Standing on the sidelines while a loved one experiences memory loss, you may feel an overwhelming sense of hopelessness and helplessness. It is painful to watch as conditions like dementia or Alzheimer’s disease chip away at cognitive functions, cause confusion and loss of capability, and steal away their spirit.
If you have a loved one struggling with cognitive impairment, then you’ve walked a difficult road. As their condition inevitably progresses, you may need support as much as they need care. The loss of connection to the person you once knew takes a toll on you in ways reminiscent of grief but without any opportunity to heal and move through it.
For anyone touched by dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, there is hope in SAIDO programs. SAIDO learning, a licensed therapy to prevent and reverse cognitive decline, improves the quality of life for participants while providing support to their families. You can ease your heartache over a loved one suffering the effects of dementia or Alzheimer’s with the support and results of a SAIDO program.
SAIDO treatments are daily sessions focused on cognitive training and enhanced individual engagement. Through math and reading mental exercises that promote active brain functions and by working in pairs or one-to-one with a trained staff member, participants stimulate their minds and engage in socialization that keeps them engaged. These structured sessions allow participants to build back their abilities, and in some cases, participants even return to previous levels of activity.
While there is no cure for dementia or Alzheimer’s, SAIDO learning extends a person’s quality of life. SAIDO learners can gain back their momentum and regain a more active lifestyle. As well as renewing their engagement, SAIDO also extends time to you and the opportunity to better understand your loved one and their condition.
