Beneficios de la Estimulación Cognitiva

El aumento de la esperanza de vida, asociado fundamentalmente a los avances biomédicos y a las mejoras en las condiciones de vida, es un hecho que caracteriza la demografía actual de las sociedades desarrolladas y es la causa fundamental que está produciendo en las mismas un notable envejecimiento de sus poblaciones.

Dentro de las intervenciones que se plantean para hacer frente a este envejecimiento surgen las terapias no farmacologicas.

Los objetivos terapéuticos de estas intervenciones son: estimular y mantener las capacidades mentales; evitar la desconexión del entorno y fortalecer las relaciones sociales; dar seguridad e incrementar la autonomía personal; estimular la propia identidad y autoestima; minimizar el estrés; optimizar el rendimiento cognitivo, mejorando el rendimiento y la independencia funcional en las actividades de la vida diaria.

El ser humano cuenta con una serie de capacidades cognitivas, funcionales, motoras, emo­cionales y psicosociales que le permiten adaptarse al entorno. Estas capacidades son susceptibles de poder ser mejoradas a través de la práctica y la experiencia, mediante la estimulación cognitiva (EC).

La EC se define como el conjunto de técnicas y estrategias que pretenden optimizar la eficacia del funcionamiento de las distintas capacidades y funciones cognitivas (per­cepción, atención, razonamiento, abstracción, memoria, lenguaje, procesos de orienta­ción y praxias) mediante una serie situaciones y actividades concretas que se estructuran en lo que se denominan “programas de entrenamiento cognitivo”. La EC no solamente se centra en la parte cognitiva, sino que aborda otros factores, tales como la afectividad, la esfera conductual, social, familiar y biológica, buscando intervenir sobre la persona adulta de forma integral.

Entre las ventajas de este tipo de tratamiento se destaca que no produce efectos se­cundarios ni interacciones farmacológicas y que además facilita el contacto personal con el terapeuta y otras personas, lo cual interviene positivamente en el comportamiento y el desarrollo cognitivo.

The increase in life expectancy, fundamentally associated with biomedical advances and improvements in the conditions of living, is a factor that characterizes the current demography of developed societies and one of the explanations for the notable aging of their populations. Among the interventions proposed to face this aging, we can find some non-pharmacological therapies.

The therapeutic objectives of these interventions are: to stimulate and maintain mental capacities, to avoid disconnection with the environment and to strengthen social relations, to give security and increase personal autonomy and at the same time to stimulate one's own identity and self-esteem, to minimize stress and to optimize cognitive performance, improving performance and functional independence in daily life activities.

The human being has a series of cognitive, functional, motor, emotional and psychosocial capacities that allow him/her to adapt to the environment. These capacities are susceptible to being improved through practice and experience, by the use of cognitive stimulation (CS). The CS is defined as the set of techniques and strategies that aim to optimize the functioning of the different capacities and cognitive functions (perception, attention, reasoning, abstraction, memory, language and orientation processes) through a series of situations and concrete activities that are structured in what are called "cognitive training programs".

Among the advantages of this type of treatment, it stands out that it does not produce secondary effects nor does it involve pharmacological interactions. Furthermore, it facilitates personal contact with the therapist and other people, which intervenes positively in behavior and cognitive development. The CS not only focuses on the cognitive part, but also includes affectivity, the behavioral, social, family and biological spheres, in order to treat the adult person in an integral way.
