Étude préliminaire du bénéfice de l'utilisation du conte sur un groupe de dix personnes atteintes de la maladie d'Alzheimer : évaluation des capacités de communication globale

Abstract : Cognitive deterioration and progressive impairment of communication brought on by dementia cause suffering and handicaps in patients afflicted with alzheimer's disease (DS). These problems increasingly isolate the individual and cut them off from social interaction. The aim of the study is to evaluate the benefits of using fairy telling on verbal and non-verbal communication capabilities in patients with AD. For this reason we proposed individual sessions with ten patients divided into two groups match in age, MMS score and social / cultural background for a duration of five months. Group 1 heard five different stories during twenty sessions. Group 2 was given mimo-gestured story sessions under same conditions. The results showed no significant differences in the overall verbal and non verbal global communication results. However, the difference in the non-verbal results was significant. This study suggests that the use of mimo-gestured stories associated with oral language can stimulate the non-verbal expression capacities in patients with AD. The results of this study are in line with others of its kind in showing the benefit of fairytelling on communication and patient behavior as well as possible stimulation of non-verbal communication
