Stay Active

What is Minds in Motion®?
Minds in Motion® is a fun and engaging program that combines physical activity and mental stimulation in a social environment. The program is designed for people living with early to mid-stage Alzheimer’s Disease or another form of dementia. Friends, family members or care partners are welcome as participants and supporters.

Is Minds in Motion® for me?
Minds in Motion® is for people with early to mid-stage symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, including memory loss, confusion, communication difficulties and changes in mood or behavior.

Minds in Motion® will help you:
• Stay physically active
• Meet and socialize online with others living with dementia
• Participate in brain health activities
• Learn about dementia programs and support

What can I expect?
Minds in Motion® takes place online using Zoom. We meet every Thursday from 11:00 am – 12:00pm. For the first part of each session, a certified instructor leads a low impact fitness class. Then, the Alzheimer Society of NB leads a social/brain activity.

Some people living with dementia participate in the program on their own, but Minds in Motion® may also be enjoyed with a friend, family member or care partner.

What do I need to participate?
• A device such as a laptop, iPad or tablet with a microphone and video camera.
• An Internet connection
• A safe, open space where you can move around a bit
• A stable chair, such as a kitchen chair
• You will receive exercise equipment from the Alzheimer’s Society after you register and you should have this within reach when you sign in for each session.
