Being active can help people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia (ADRD) feel better, move better and sleep better. Experts now say that any physical activity counts toward better health — even just a few minutes! Regular physical activity helps those with ADRD develop better strength, balance, walking speed and endurance. It also reduces physical decline and preserves day-to-day function, including sleeping habits. When people with ADRD become active, safety is a priority. Caregivers and health professionals should always exercise with the person with ADRD. That way, both will reap the health benefits of being active!
