DESK REVIEW | Psychosocial services and rehabilitation

Yes, but not specifically for people living with dementia.

There are a few dementia activities centres and day-care centres in the country that provide cognitive stimulation and support functional rehabilitation for people with dementia.

Puskesmas santun lansia (geriatric friendly Puskesmas) provide promotive, preventive, curative, and rehabilitative services including psychosocial therapy services in rehabilitative sectors (Zakiah, 2017). The services consist of psychological health services and cognitive activities for older people, which aim to support older people in preserving their functional abilities and independency (Aistyawati, 2016).
