Occupational Therapy and Dementia

Occupational therapy can play a large role in the treatment of dementia.

Occupational Therapy and Dementia

Studies show that occupational therapy shows great success for dementia patients struggling with cognitive impairments impacting their daily lives.


A study by the Official Journal of the American Academy of Neurology found that:

Reactivating occupational rehabilitation (memory training, manual/creative activities, improving sensorimotor functions, and self-management therapy) proved more efficient in improving cognitive performance, psychosocial functioning, emotional balance, and subjective well-being than functional rehabilitation (functional occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and speech therapy).

Our tool provides a non-stressful environment for your patients through online occupational therapy activities that can be used with dementia patients. We know that not all patients are the same, and that each patient experiences different levels of complications. For this reason, we have incorporated a unique range of difficulty so that all patients can be successful at their own speeds.


HappyNeuron Pro’s cognitive stimulation tools adapt to the patient and have a variety of tasks that cover a wide range of cognitive functions. Dementia intervention with HappyNeuron Pro is fun for patients and is easily accessible for clinicians.
