The Alzheimer Society of Manitoba is excited to announce that the Minds in Motion® program coming to Altona and Morden this Fall!!

Minds in Motion® is a two-hour program runs for eight weeks. Each session combines physical activity, socialization and mental stimulation for people living with early to moderate symptoms of dementia to attend with a family member or community friend.

The benefits of movement help to improve balance, mobility, flexibility and alertness. The goal is to increase confidence in physical and social abilities and sharpen mental functioning and also possible improve sleep habits.

The Minds in Motion® program is a great way for people impacted by dementia to take care of their hearts, minds and bodies,” says Kathy Fehr, South Central Regional Coordinator, Alzheimer Society of Manitoba. “It brings together people with family and friends in the community, giving them the opportunity to normalize the relationship in a way that is not influenced by the illness.”
