Hope is the Power of Life & Fuel of Our Dreams
An article published by the Mayo Clinic reports that people
with Alzheimer's feel better, both physically and emotionally,
when they get regular, moderate exercise.
Programs that engage individuals in meaningful activities, exercise and social interaction may reduce the frequency of wandering. Walking - the most readily available form of exercise - can be combined with other useful activities.
Moderate exercise helps many people with Alzheimer's disease feel better - both physically and emotionally. As little as 20 minutes of walking three times a week can boost mood, decrease risk of falls, reduce wandering and delay nursing home placement in people with Alzheimer's. Some types of repetitive household tasks can provide exercise while allowing someone with Alzheimer's to feel like he or she is helping out.
Neurology Today reported symptoms of Alzheimer's disease can be reduced by
reading and engaging in leisure activities may reduce the risk or delay the onset of clinical manifestations of dementia, according to a new study published in Neurology Today. A thorough physical exam will reveal any health problems that may impose restrictions on an exercise program.
