The National Institutes for Health has offered free cognitive-behavioral therapy to a family of two people with Alzheimer.
The two people were taking part in a study, which was funded by the Alzheimer’s Association and the Alzheimer Study Center.
The researchers at the Alzheimer study center said the study involved 40 to 50 people and was designed to help people with mild cognitive impairment.
An assistant professor of behavioral sciences at the University of Iowa in Iowa City said the treatment was designed as a “comprehensive behavioral intervention program” that is designed to improve their ability to think clearly and learn.
The study was published online in the journal PLOS ONE.
The study was also published in The Journal of the American Medical Association.
The Alzheimer’s Society said it was disappointed that the study did not show that people who took part in the study benefited from cognitive-behavioural therapy.
“We are disappointed that this study did indeed show benefits from cognitive behavioral therapy for cognitive-impaired adults with mild dementia, rather than the benefits that the researchers reported,” the Alzheimer Society said in a statement.
“This is because cognitive-enhancing therapies can increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, but the potential benefits are limited because these therapies do not appear to improve cognitive functioning or decrease the severity of cognitive decline,” the society said.
There is no evidence that cognitive behavioral therapies are effective for people with dementia, said Nancy Schulz, a professor of nursing at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
