Neurological training is comparable and just as important as physical exercise, as demonstrated by Neurovida
They don’t admit that what happened was wrong, they don’t handle money well, or they repeat the same problem over and over again. These three are typical conditions that indicate that a person may be suffering from a cognitive impairment problem. They can also present difficulties in performing the tasks they previously held, accessing the usual Lexicon and orienting themselves in familiar environments, says the neuropsychologist of the Neurovida day center, Julene Carcamo.
The symptoms are more significant associated with cognitive deterioration, so these counseling and coexistence centers recommend that if family members or people in the environment have doubts or observe any of these behaviors, they go to the family doctor and then refer to the artist. The neurologist will determine whether or not such cognitive needs exist and in what state the patient is. And this is why alterations in thinking, learning, memory or deliberation, as this growing problem is defined, can reach mild or acute states that manifest in diseases such as Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia, such as Lewy bodies.
Diseases are not exclusive to the elderly, but are associated with aging, in which mental and physical faculties are lost. In Neurovida, a daily care report for these people, most of the participants (as those who are called to these centers) have cognitive impairment and, as in the observations, they mean the difference between men and women, with impairment. later They are clearly, says Iulene Carcamo, the ones asking for help the most, they go to these centers more and more willingly to complete the social work and restoration. Reasons: women live longer than men and vice versa have historically taken careless roles. Therefore, if the person presenting the degenerate problem is a man, it is more common for him to stay at home under the care of the women in the family.
Socializing with peers prevents cognitive decline and depression
This is precisely the error in the treatment of cognitive indigestion. When people receive a loved one’s diagnosis, there is a fear that the elderly will often appear hurt or lost, but the loneliness will weaken them even more. Socialization, the neuropsychologist explains, “is essential at all levels and to maintain adequate emotional well-being and prevent depression or anxiety. It is known that low moods directly affect cognitive functioning, and can cause or accelerate it.”
For this reason, pending new data on the incidence and prevalence of these neurological problems, it is considered that the pandemic has had a very negative effect in both aspects. Not in the elderly — most Neurovid participants are between 70 and 95 years old — but in the entire population. Due, on the one hand, to loneliness, and on the other hand, because one of the possible consequences of covid is cognitive deterioration. According to a study by the University of Cambridge and Imperial College and published in the journal EclinicalMedicina, the cognitive impairment arising from Covid_19 is similar to that which can be suffered between the ages of 50 and 70 and is equivalent to ten points. in IQ
At the moment, and according to figures prepared by the Geriatrics portal, 3 out of 10 people over the age of 65 suffer from mild dementia, three million people who do not face any illness, but which can be prevented and slowed down.
Objectively, prevent disease with personalized therapies
With this aim, to check cognitive deterioration, Neurovida centers are organized around four therapeutic programs that are carried out daily: occupational therapy, physiotherapy, neuropsychology and speech therapy. It is important to emphasize to those responsible that these activities are part of routines that “provide them with security, help them to maintain their autonomy and independence for longer and to avoid disordered disorders that can lead to agitation.”
However, these practices should be personal and attendees should never be forced to carry them out unless they want to. As Julen Carcamo mentions, “for an effective cognitive stimulation therapy, it is important to adapt the activities to the characteristics of the person with whom we work and take into account their likes, preferences, hobbies, life history, etc. profession, etc. It is important that the person moves and the activities are attractive and interesting to them.
Thus, and with the intention of closing cognitive impairment, to the aforementioned socialization, professional therapy and routines, and also to the advice of Neurovida team experts, appropriate diet, good health, health care, physical exercise and performing hobbies and/or tasks that contribute to increasing cognitive resources, such as reading, music or simple hobbies.
