Community Partnerships: Cognitive Stimulation Therapy

Cognitive Stimulation Therapy is an intervention for people with dementia that offers a range of enjoyable, fun, activities providing general stimulation for thinking, concentration and memory, in a small group.

The insight from those who have attended this service was collated and anonymised and
forms part of the insight and evidence that Healthwatch gather to identify common themes around what works and doesn’t work for local people.

This insight is used to influence services development and can feed into:

  • West Sussex Health and Wellbeing Board
  • HASC – Health and Adult Social Care Select Committee
  • WSCC Joint Strategic Needs Assessment
  • Safeguarding Adult Board
  • The developing Integrated Care System for Sussex
