Get people with Alzheimer’s up and active!

e-Update from the Alzheimer's Disease Education and Referral Center, a service of the National Institute on Aging at N I H

Being active and getting exercise helps people with Alzheimer’s feel better. It works for caregivers, too! Whether it’s walking, gardening, dancing, or something else, physical activity can help keep muscles, joints, and the heart in good shape.
To help a person with Alzheimer’s stay active:
  • Break exercises into simple, easy-to-follow steps.
  • Make sure the person wears comfortable clothes and shoes that fit well and are made for exercise.
  • Be realistic about how much activity can be done at one time. Several 10-minute “mini-workouts” may be best.
