Cognitive Therapy

Problems with memory can be concerning and can lead to other medical issues like falls or forgetting to take medication.
Our outpatient cognitive therapy program in Greenville helps patients regain or maintain memory skills lost due to a disorder, illness, or injury.
Led by certified speech therapists, our cognitive rehabilitation services create memory strategies based on the individual needs of each patient.

About Therapy

Cognitive therapy sessions are scheduled 2-4 times a week for 55 minutes each session. A course of therapy usually lasts 8 weeks at which time patients are re-evaluated.

Our therapists use a variety of memory strategies based on the individual needs of each patient. After the plan is implemented, the strategies are practiced and repeated.

Techniques may include:

  • Creating a memory book tailored to specific daily needs (e.g. dog care, blood pressure checks, medication)
  • Creating a habit book to look at every 2 hours
  • Focusing on tools such as timers and alarms
  • List making
  • Visualization strategies
  • And more

If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with a memory condition, or are experiencing difficulties thinking or communicating, we encourage you to learn more about our program.

Our program is covered by Medicaid and some private insurances. A physician referral is required.
