Exercise and physical activity can have lots of benefits for people with dementia. It can help regulate their sleep and prevent restlessness and sleeplessness in the evening. It can also help maintain a positive mood and lower the risk of them developing depression. 


"Where staying connected and having fun makes a difference."

The Alzheimer's Association's Memory Cafés offer a fun and relaxed way for people living with early-stage memory loss to get connected with one another through social events that promote interaction and companionship. This is a place where the care partner can receive information while connecting and sharing with other people in similar situations. The bonds formed in Memory Cafés often last throughout the continuum of the disease and become an additional support for those involved.
