just as I was preparing for lessons yesterday, I queried the 2018 British NICE's summary of cognitive impairment and gave some advice on this question.
I will move

1.4.1Offer a range of activities to promote wellbeing that are tailored to the person's preferences.
provides a range of activities tailored to patients' preferences to improve their happiness. Don't deprive a patient of his basic rights as a person and his ability to enjoy small things in life. For example, a person who was an engineer before his illness also liked music, which could be done by giving him Lego toys, or drawing drawings, or musical instruments.
1.4.2Offer grouptherapy to people living with mild to moderate dementia.
provide cognitive stimulation therapy for patients with mild to moderate cognitive therapy. (Cognitive stimulation therapy, is the doctoral project of Professor Aimee Spector of UCL. After that, Chinese localization was first started in Hong Kong. It happened to be done by my current small boss. After that, Peking University also did the localization of the mainland, and interested friends can search for it themselves. This is the only project recommended by NICE, and it has to be in the form of a group to be useful. Although CST now also has a home version, that is, family members can do for patients, or online version, but the current evidence is not sufficient.
1.4.3Consider group reminiscence therapy for people living with mild to moderate dementia.
for mild to moderate patients,(please refer to Dr. Chen's answer upstairs). Why consider this treatment rather than completely recommend it, because not all studies have found it to be effective.
1.4.4Consideror occupational therapy to support functional ability in people living with mild to moderate dementia.
for mild to moderate patients, cognitive rehabilitation therapy or functional therapy should be considered to assist the ability of daily living. To a large extent, this will determine whether the patient can take care of himself, and it is much easier to take care of a patient who will go to the bathroom and take a bath on his own, so this ability should be maintained as far as possible.
1.4.5Do not offer acupuncture to treat dementia.
do not use acupuncture for medical treatment. It can cure physical illness or something, but there is no evidence that it is useful for cognitive impairment.
1.4.6Do not offer ginseng, vitamin E supplements, or herbal formulations to treat dementia.
do not use ginseng, vitamin E, or other herbal formulations. Similarly, maybe it's no harm to eat it, but it just can't cure it.
1.4.7Do not offerto treat mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease.
do not provide cognitive training for mild to moderate patients. The biggest difference between cognitive training and cognitive stimulation is that the former is lab training, such as training you to remember a set of numbers 808742146, while the latter is a game in life, such as giving you 100 yuan to buy vegetables, 10 yuan for cabbage, and how much else is there? Because the former is repeatedly training with no practical meaning in life, practicing too much may produce side effects such as frustration or boredom, etc.
1.4.8Do not offery to treat the cognitive symptoms of mild to moderate Alzheimer' S disease.
do not give interpersonal psychotherapy to mild to moderate patients. I am not very familiar with the literature in this area. I am interested to consult it myself. To put it simply, cognitive therapy is cerebral degeneration, not mental illness, so psychotherapy is useless. Of course, if you are depressed because of a diagnosis of cognitive therapy, and if you are in the early stages of cognitive decline and can communicate, you can treat depression through psychotherapy.
1.4.9Do not offer non-invasive brain stimulation (including transcranial magnetic stimulation) to treat mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease, except as part of a randomised controlled trial.
do not provide non-invasive brain stimulation (including cranial magnetic stimulation) for the treatment of mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease unless it is to study the comparison group. (hmm,) I need to see more of the literature on why RCT can use this, but it should be useless, so I use it as a control group. )
finally, in fact,this word is used when I type lazily, and the literal translation is"a person with cognitive impairment". From Alzheimer's to dementia, our words, especially on public platforms, can affect social attitudes towards a disease and even a person's own tendency to seek medical treatment if he or she is suspected of getting sick.
so, basically, remember that no matter what diagnosis, as caregivers, we have to deal with a person.

it happened to be discussed with my mother recently. My mother now has a slight tremble in her head, but there are no other problems, and she forgets things once in a while.
at present is to talk to her more every day, teach her some new and simple things, and use her brain more. Take her out to play sometime, and some movement coordination exercises on her hands. Maintain a certain amount of exercise and outdoor activities every day, light diet. I think the most important thing is to spend more time with her and make her happy.

I'm really sad.
I'm worried that my grandmother will forget me.
she told me one day that sometimes she couldn't remember what she was going to do, sometimes it was like staying, her head was at a loss.
I know something bad is wrong.
I bought her an old Sudoku game book, and she insisted on it a few months ago.
now seems to have forgotten.
I kiss her every time I leave home.
she was worried about me and thought I was the child who hadn't grown up.
do what I like and help me pack my suitcase.
fill my bag with my favorite snacks and chocolates.
she must live a long life.
I want to be able to hear her nagging at the age of thirty and forty, and all that big truth.
I would like to pinch her shoulders and punch her back instead of letting her use a massager.
"Grandma, you must never be confused. If you are confused, what should I do? if you are confused, I will cry and cry. I will not sleep at 12:00. I will sleep late every day and step barefoot on the floor."
I want to make you the happiest old lady in the world.

the effective prevention is:.
generallyin"what is the cause of Alzheimer's disease". Controlling these factors can also reduce the incidence and prevalence of Alzheimer's disease.
it has also been reported that adequate sleep, a reasonable diet, physical exercise, good mood, mental activity and communication between relatives and friends all help to prevent the occurrence of Alzheimer's disease.
at the same time, it is very important to emphasize"optimistic, open-minded and peaceful state of mind"."if you are in good health, you must first nourish your heart."if you have a bad state of mind, you are prone to many diseases. after retirement, the elderly must maintain social ties, exercise their bodies, have their own interests and hobbies, maintain lifelong learning, use their brains more and use their brains frequently, and at the same time communicate more with their children to reduce loneliness.
I believe that after understanding Alzheimer's disease, we can carry out targeted prevention, find similar signs in advance, and avoid it as much as possible.
finally, you are welcome to pay attention to my official account [] and explore what we care about.

in the field of intelligence training, some scholars have proposed"3R therapy"to improve the ability of self-care, communication, behavior and psychology of the elderly with Alzheimer's disease (Alzheimer's disease,AD), delay the development of the disease, and improve the quality of life and well-being of early patients [1]. This set of treatments is so systematic that caregivers can train the elderly in a planned way.
"3R"therapy includes: Reminiscence (recollection), Reality Orientation (realistic orientation) and Remotivation (restimulation). Specifically:
includes childhood memories, young experiences, major historical events, celebrities, nostalgic songs, old movies, sad memories, important days, favorite places, favorite food, my family, my achievements, etc.
stimulate old people's memories of the past with the help of pictures, old photos, songs, movies, newspapers, etc., and encourage them to talk about experiences and experiences related to these past events.
inform the elderly of their correct understanding of their own diseases, and carry out environmental memory training, such as asking the elderly to give their home address, special buildings and junctions around them, and specific routes to their homes.
"3R"therapy lies in learning, practicing repeatedly, strengthening constantly, integrating training into daily life, and participating in the elderly and caregivers together.

is not professional, very amateur. But. There will always be such a situation around, so there will be to understand, to inquire and think. I have also seen a variety of viewpoints, methods, and prescriptions.
make a brief list. I hope it will be useful and meaningful.
1. Playing mahjong
sounds a little crazy, but from a personal point of view, the handsome grandparents who have always liked to play mahjong and cards. It's all really good. It's pretty good. No matter how you say it, you're using your head. It should help.
2. Recall
recall what you had in the morning, what you had for lunch, and what happened yesterday. I have heard that the brain is like a machine. It becomes more and more flexible and is really broken if it is not used for a long time. Some people have said that"Ji"and"memory"are two different things, adhere to the"memory"method, it seems that there will be some improvement in memory.
<Continue to deepen learning, research, writing. Psychologically, there is also a sustenance in the direction of success, always feel that it is different.
4. Communication
What's more, in class, some teachers who do psychology education at Beijing normal University mentioned this. You don't have to argue, make friends. As far as the elders express themselves, it is already very helpful for people to talk and chat.
5. Good sleep
remember, when I was in high school, I did English"Reading comprehension"and saw an article about a movie called"Still Alice", which had something to do with the subject. Later, out of curiosity, he searched for information everywhere. I found a TED talk, quoting part of it, probably saying that scientists had previously believed that poor sleep could be a harbinger of Alzheimer's disease. Lack of sleep for just one night increases beta-amyloid protein. The accumulation of amyloid protein has been shown to affect sleep, leading to the accumulation of more amyloid protein, resulting in an increased risk of illness.
Please search for details, please poke the TED speech"
