What is dementia? I don’t know you tell me. Dementia is a degenerative disease that results in a loss of brain function, including significant limitations in memory, thinking, language, judgment and behavior. Similar to occupational therapy, functional exercises involve a lot of fine motor control movements that are designed to help you perform daily activities such as brushing your teeth, washing your hair and changing your clothes.

Your ability to perform some of these tasks may get difficult by dementia, making functional exercise necessary to increase your quality of life. A strength training program for dementia patients can improve independence, mobility and balance.

Dementia patients must always perform physical activity with a qualified professional to make sure the exercises are done correctly and safely. Consult your physician before beginning any type of exercise for dementia treatment.
