A recent article by the Associated Press posits that exercise may do more than just keep a healthy brain fit.  Researchers are uncovering data that suggests that staying fit “may also offer some help once memory starts to slide - and even improve life for people with Alzheimer's”.  Exercise burns calories, relieves stress and releases endorphins, which are neuropeptides or feel good chemicals, that’s why we feel so good after a work-out!  As if we needed more of a reason to exercise. Now research scientists are discovering evidence that strongly suggest that exercise helps improve memory, particularly with people living with Alzheimer’s.

If you or someone you know is suffering from Alzheimer’s, you don’t have to go through it alone.  Please don’t hesitate to talk to someone. Alzheimer’s affects the entire family, including caregivers.  Book an appointment to speak with a therapist.
