Most people find some satisfaction when a goal of some type, even a small one, is achieved. Why should people with Alzheimer’s feel differently? According to an article on Medical News Today titled, “Achieving Goals Empowers People with Dementia,” researchers at Bangor University, Wales found that “people who received cognitive rehabilitation felt their performance of daily activities improved. Carers (caregivers) of those receiving the treatment also noted an improvement in their own quality of life.” The results of this research were published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.
