Living with the awful disease dementia has many challenges in itself to those affected and those close to them, and the thought of more exercise may seem like a step too far, but experts have stressed that even a walk around the house or garden may play a big part in slowing down the disease.
We all know we should aim to lead a healthy lifestyle to improve our lives, and all is not lost if dementia starts to develop. Even a small amount of exercise can improve many factors and make us feel healthier and able to lead healthier lifestyles.
So, it is never too late to start exercising, and there is no time like the present to make an effort to improve your own lifestyle.
