Exercise and Dementia

Keeping active is hugely important for reducing the risk of dementia, managing the condition and improving quality of life. There are several different types of exercises that can be adapted to individual preferences and abilities. For example, look for seated exercises for people who have difficulty walking. Dance can be beneficial for people living with dementia, especially those who have been recently diagnosed. Dancing improves coordination and balance but also has the social aspect which makes it fun and interactive. Consult a physiotherapist to determine which exercise is best for you.
