Process Manual for VIRTUAL BRAINS IN ACTION  an Intervention for People Living with Mild to Moderate Dementia Using Telehealth

An effective, easy to follow manual that will assist you to implement a new virtual programme for your clients, with activity ideas and lots of tips and tricks for the facilitator. The manual covers the complete programme from the assessment process all the way to facilitating the session. 

Virtual Brains In Action is based on the well researched intervention Cognitive Stimulation Therapy and any facilitator with experience in CST can use the manual and implement the treatment in virtual form.


Out of a challenging global pandemic grew a programme that can be beneficial in lots of different ways for people living with mild to moderate dementia. My innovative Telehealth approach can also be used to engage with clients who live remotely and have difficulty accessing services or with individuals, clients who are more comfortable with a one-on-one approach.
