It is well known that brain size diminishes during aging and in Alzheimer Disease. This is due to cortical atrophy resulting in decreased neuronal activity. Consequently, the key question in Alzheimer’s disease is not how we can prevent cell loss, but rather how we can reactivate atrophic neurons. How can we activate neuroplasticity? Through neuropsychological rehabilitation. How does it work? It enhances cognitive functions and carrying out daily life activities by utilizing brain plasticity. However, it cannot be considered a cure for the disease but can help prevent and delay cognitive decline.

What do people know about neuropsychological
rehabilitation?

The latest research facts support the notion that there is a growing awareness of the relationship between dementia and neuropsychological rehabilitation. People with dementia seek neuropsychological rehabilitation as the best treatment choice.

Is it possible to hinder the onset of the disease or delay its development through neuropsychological rehabilitation?

Yes indeed, because a certain amount of neuronal survival and plasticity in aging and Alzheimer’s disease remains spared and is use-dependent. This suggestion is based on the assumption that the adult brain can be regenerated, even in old age, as long as we feed it with new experiences.

This is exactly the aim of our approach:
The prevention and delay of the progression of the disease. The activation of brain cells offers protection against atrophy.

The aims of neuropsychological rehabilitation are:


a) Improvement of cognitive function and well-being

b) Improvement of daily function

c) Enhancement of self-effectiveness and coping

d) Prevention or delay of the cognitive impairment

Our Approach

It is suggested that appropriate treatment is based on the biopsychosocial approach. Thus, our approach is person centered and holistic. That means that the rehabilitation program will be adjusted to the biological, psychological and social needs of the trainee.

How do we access the level of cognitive and functional impairment of a candidate for neuropsychological rehabilitation?

We implement a sound neuropsychological assessment for the evaluation of the cognitive, functional and emotional state. We use worldwide accepted neuropsychological tests standardized in the UK population.

How exactly does neuropsychological rehabilitation work?

A high-standard rehabilitation intervention includes:

a) Medical treatment at a biological level
b) Cognitive training and cognitive stimulation for enhancement or stabilization of cognitive skills
c) Psycho-education of caregivers
