Physical Activity and Alzheimer's Disease Toolkit

Regular participation in physical activity is associated with a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Among older adults with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, regular physical activity can improve performance of activities of daily living and mobility, and may improve general cognition and balance.

How to use the toolkit

The information pamphlet and quick tips guide highlight the evidence-based benefits of physical activity for older adults. It provides suggestions for how to include physical activity into your daily life and safety tips for being active.

This toolkit was recently updated in partnership with the Dementia-Inclusive Choices for Exercise (DICE), based out of the Brain and Body Lab at the University of Waterloo.
