Cultiva a Mente
Prevention of cognitive decline


There is a well-established and scientifically supported idea that taking care of oneself both physically and mentally provides well-being and quality of life that can last for years, and that older adults can be active agents in the prevention of degenerative diseases.

In addition, the maintenance of social activities and independence in everyday life are goals that enter into the life plans of older adults.

Against this background, we face the challenge of ensuring that older adults adopt healthier lifestyle habits and have access to preventive services.

To do this, we must develop and adapt spaces, programmes and solutions that are adapted to their needs and that are in their environment. Given the need to meet health-related demands, it is notable that more and more public and socio-community leisure venues include areas dedicated to physical and mental exercise.

In addition to the proven beneficial effects of cognitive, physical, functional and social stimulation, it is also necessary to respond to the concerns and worries of older adults at this stage of life, as well as to promote greater empowerment in the face of current challenges (digitalisation, ecological commitment, equality, among others).

The "Cultiva a Mente" workshop is a project that covers the prevention of neurodegenerative deterioration and the promotion of healthy habits on a cognitive, emotional, physical, functional and social level. Participants play a predominantly active role in this therapeutic and formative programme that explores the concerns and needs of each person, providing a useful response for their day-to-day life.


To promote an active and positive ageing process in cognitive, emotional, functional and social areas as a precursor to an adequate maintenance of independent living in the participating older adults.
