Evaluating feasibility and satisfaction of a group intervention for mild cognitive impairment in older age bipolar disorder: “Brain train”

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

To date, no remediation treatment is available aimed at improving cognitive functioning in patients with older age bipolar disorder (OABD). Our pilot intervention (Brain train) included cognitive training, physical exercise, and social encounter with peers for OABD and was positively evaluated by the participants. However, its feasibility was limited as few patients fulfilled the inclusion criteria of cognitive and social impairment and retaining the physical ability to walk for a minimum of 30 min. OABD patients with cognitive impairment are a vulnerable group for which it is most challenging to design interventions aimed at improving daily functioning.
