Who is this service for?

The person living with memory loss – The In-TanDEM coach runs virtual cognitive stimulation therapy sessions designed to maintain cognitive function. The therapy runs for 14 sessions and has been proven to slow cognitive decline. The sessions incorporate a range of fun and social talking activities which work the different functions of the brain. These include reminiscence, creative and practical activities, discussions focussed on opinions and not on facts, cognitive games such as word or number games, physical games, and orientation using seasonal activities and observations.

The informal dementia caregiver – The In-TanDEM coach runs a virtual support service on specific topics related to dementia. Families can request a single one-off session or a series of sessions with a trained dementia coach.

How does it work?

We use video technology to connect with people in the comfort of their own home. For this, you will need your own device and an internet connection. We make the process of getting online simple and easy, which is perfect for those who don’t feel confident around computer technology.

  2. The In-TanDEM team will be in touch to determine the most appropriate programme for you and gather the relevant information.
  3. We will send you a step by step guide on how to access the sessions using your device.
  4. The sessions are done virtually via your computer, tablet or TV – using Zoom, Facetime or one of the other video services.
  5. Sessions typically last 40 minutes and can be done as a one-off, or as often as the individual would like.

Atlas are experts in working with memory problems and all our coaches are very friendly professionals with their own areas of expertise. This allows us to link you with a coach who is a perfect match for your individual needs.

“As a carer I benefit from the sessions as Mum had something planned to look forward to independent of me and the cognitive stimulation provided by these sessions definitely helps to support her mood and general sense of wellbeing.”

– Nic Shaw
