Social Activity: Movement & Motion
1st & 3rd Fridays of every month @ 10-11:30 AM
Alzheimer’s San Diego (6632 Convoy Ct., San Diego, CA)
FACT: Adults need at least 150 minutes of aerobic activity each week, according to the National Institutes of Health. That is why we created Movement & Motion, a twice-monthly social activity designed for people living with dementia and their care partners.
Physical activity provides proven benefits for people living with dementia, such as increased blood flow to the brain, slowing of physical and cognitive decline, and reducing depression. It can also help with appetite regulation, improving sleep and providing vital social stimulation. Activities like Movement & Motion are great for care partners, too! Evidence suggests that getting your body moving can reduce stress, depression and caregiver burden.
