Cognitive rehabilitation has been defined as a comprehensive program aiming to cognitive enhancement. It has been developed as a method of rehabilitation for people with cognitive impairment of various etiologies such as traumatic brain injury, cerebral vascular accident, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and developmental disorders. Cognitive rehabilitation is a non-interventional, non-pharmaceutical personalized treatment. Due to the low efficacy of pharmacological approaches to the day, cognitive rehabilitation is expected to play an important role in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. The aim of this review is to present cognitive rehabilitation as a mental enhancement strategy in Alzheimer’s disease and to state the worth of cognitive rehabilitation in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, the benefits and drawbacks, the cost and the overall implementation, as well as the optimal future approach of the strategy.
