Question and answer
how different individuals may experience living with dementia
Keeping fit and healthy is important for everyone in life. This is even more so if you have been diagnosed with Dementia. [ Although you may experience some challenges as time goes on, you can still keep yourself in good shape with a few simple considerations. This will help you remain independent to a degree, especially in the early stages of your condition, and keeping physically fit has been proven to help delay the onset of memory problems associated with Dementia. You may need the help of your carer, family, or support worker to do some of the things mentioned in this section, but you
should always use whatever resources are available to keep to your chosen routine. If you would like to swim as part of your weekly exercise, then you will most certainly need help from someone. Although you could view this as being less independent than doing it alone, the social aspect of having someone with you will certainly make the swimming session more enjoyable. Now that we have established the importance of keeping our bodies fit and healthy, we also need to highlight the importance of keeping our minds fit. If you have Dementia, any form of regular mental exercise will help retain your mental abilities. As time goes on, your memory will decline, but regular mental 'workouts' can help slow down the deterioration. ]
