The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of the cognitive-linguistic intervention in people aged 80 and older.
Twenty-four individuals were divided into two groups: intervention (83.08 ± 2.61 yrs) and control (82.67 ± 2.10 yrs). The interventions involved a total of ten twice-weekly sessions. Treatment protocol consisted of various cognitive-linguistic tasks including attention, visuoperception, memory, problem-solving, executive function, and language.
It was found that the intervention group improved significantly in 5 domains including memory and language. Furthermore, pre and post differences in the cognitive-linguistic abilities like problem solving and language were significant between two groups.
These findings systematically demonstrate the effect of cognitive-linguistic intervention for the elderly. The results also facilitate evidence-based and preventive cognitive-linguistic interventions, and eventually contribute to improving the quality of life in older adults.
