Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, resulting in progressive cognitive and psychological changes. Dementia symptoms can impact physical function leading to complications and reduced quality of life. Physical activity improves mobility, mood and may slow the progression of cognitive decline.
To commemorate World Alzheimer’s Day, join us for the 15th instalment of our Wellness series with Senior Physiotherapist, Marcus Tow, as he addresses factors affecting mobility in persons with Alzheimer’s and interventions for functional health.
