Project Title: High Intensity Exercise Programs for Seniors with Middle to Late Stage Dementia
This project is creating exercise programs for residents in long-term care living with dementia to help them maximize their potential, as well as improve access to rehabilitation for older adults. A series of exercise circuits will be developed that can be run in any long term-care home across Canada, with training material for frontline staff to engage those living with dementia in exercise programs.
