Learning your senior loved one has been diagnosed with dementia can be extremely frightening. Of course, dementia is challenging for seniors, but watching a loved one experience sadness and frustration as a result of dementia can be stressful for the whole family. As dementia advances, seniors can become angry, frustrated, and depressed as they experience memory loss, confusion, and a decreased ability to communicate.

CTM is designed to promote cognitive health, increase a sense of accomplishment and self-esteem, and decrease fear and anxiety.
