The upcoming iCST dementia training is on

Reasons why attending iCST training?

iCST is an adaptable approach which can benefit a wide range of people with dementia and family carers and be offered longer-term.
Evidence-based shows that people with dementia receiving iCST reported better relationship quality with their carers. Carers delivering iCST reported a significant improvement in health related quality of life. Carers who delivered more sessions had fewer depressive symptoms (Orrell et al., 2017). A qualitative study found that taking part in the iCST intervention motivated people with dementia to keep their mind active and look for more information about mental stimulation(Leung et al.,2017). A person with dementia shared that “It (iCST) made me start thinking about doing what I used to do which was paintings over there, that I've done …I can get up and do things more easily "
