For people with mild-to-moderate dementia, cognitive stimulation probably leads to small benefits in cognition (the general ability to think and remember). We found a range of other probable benefits, including improved well-being, mood and day-to-day abilities, but benefits were generally slight and, especially for cognition and well-being, varied greatly between studies. Most studies evaluated group cognitive stimulation. Future studies should try to clarify the effects of individual cognitive stimulation, assess how often group sessions should take place to have the best effect, and identify who benefits most from cognitive stimulation.
