Objective: The purpose of this study is to conduct in-depth research on the cognitive training treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and evaluate its efficacy. Methods: 74 cases of Alzheimer’s disease patients in the hospital were randomly selected for analysis and study from January 2023 to December 2023. The 74 patients were divided into two groups, 37 cases in the control group received conventional drug treatment, while 37 cases in the study group received conventional drug treatment combined with cognitive training. The cognitive functions of the two groups of patients before and after receiving the two different treatment methods were compared. Results: The cognitive impairment symptoms of patients in both groups were alleviated to a certain degree. The ADAS-Cog score of the study group was significantly lower than that of the control group, and the CDT, RVR, TMT-A, DS, FOME, and BD scores were higher than those of the control group, P < 0.05. Conclusion: After the combined intervention of medication and cognitive training therapy, the cognitive function of patients with Alzheimer’s disease was significantly improved, which increased the patients’ rehabilitation effect and quality of life, so this combined therapy is worth further research for widespread application.
