Alzheimer's Therapy, Banbury

Updated on November 6, 2014

Alzheimer's and Dementia therapy support at The Paloma Centre in Banbury

The care of people living with various types of dementia, such as Alzheimer is a specialised area requiring great patience and understanding and is one that we focus on here at The Paloma Centre. Alzheimer's and dementia places great demands not only upon the individual but also most particularly upon their family group and loved ones for whom this can be a most testing, frustrating and demanding condition to cope with.

The specialised use of a combination of therapies, including hypnotherapy and psychotherapy has recently been shown to improve the quality of life of Alzheimer's and dementia patients and is particularly helpful to family support members. Specific training has been undertaken at The Paloma Centre to ensure that these patients and their family support groups can be addressed in a more meaningful manner.

For more information about Alzheimer's care and other life enhancing therapies such as CBT, cognitive behavioural therapy, Counselling, EFT, NLP, and Life Coaching do call David on 01295 812138 or visit our website at for more information.

The Paloma Centre adheres to practice guidelines set out by the UKCP.

Hypnosis - the facts

Alzheimer's therapy and support at The Paloma Centre

Dementia - What does it mean?

While the physical changes to the brain inherent in the process of Alzheimer's developing are currently irreversible and incurable, their life limiting affects may, in some cases, be alleviated to some degree in the context of improving the quality of life of the person living with Alzheimer's condition. The emotional wellbeing of the individual's family support group may also benefit from the use of therapy in easing their understandable feelings of frustration, anger, guilt and grief. Supporting a loved one suffering from a condition such as Alzheimer's has often been described as "mourning the living" and much can be done to alleviate this stress on the family support group.

Improving the Quality of Life.

Recent research has shown that hypno-psychotherapy can be effective in improving the quality of life for Alzheimer patients in seven main areas:

Concentration on daily tasks.

Relaxation, thus reducing anxiety which is a common feature.

Motivation, thus tending to avoid depressive conditions.

Undertaking daily activities and keeping active. Immediate memory retention.

Memory for significant life events.

Socialisation thereby avoiding the tendency for self-isolation.

Further research was conducted a year later to measure the longevity and continuing efficacy of the original therapy and it was found that in all cases the effects were still present and in some cases had continued to improve without further therapeutic intervention.

David Dove has been trained in the use of hypnotherapy with Alzheimer's patients. This training was conducted in conjunction with The Alzheimer's Society and the The National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy .

The Paloma Centre specialise

in therapy connected to the wellbeing of those living with Dementia and their family, carers and support groups.

      This issue will become even more important in our society (in years to come), since the boomers are aging and less children are being born. Plenty of folks should seek help - this is something that caregivers really need to know there is support for when facing dementia or Alzheimer's in a loved one.

      The Paloma Centre is doing a great job and I particularly like the multi-factorial approach taken to patient care. Many ailments such as Alzheimers require more than one approach to provide significant benefits, and I particularly appreciate the open mindedness to use treatments such as meridian therapies.
