CST Provision

CST is not yet part of a treatments accessible in government-funded healthcare services. Several day centres and programmes aimed at older people have implemented CST-inspired approach, although there might be differences in the structure of the activities.

CST Research Projects

Currently we are doing a 3-arms intervention study, consisting of groups of community-dwelling older people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) receiving CST and Brain Vitality Exercise, CST only, and treatment as usual. The study also serves as a capacity building opportunity for local cadres to be facilitators.

There have been several other studies on CST adaptation effectiveness on older people with mild-to-moderate dementia in nursing homes which consisted of respondents with predominantly lower level of education.
