Hi everyone. Just looking for some initial direction please. My Dad has dementia, he is early stage, so i feel now is the time to try and slow down the inevitable if possible. My Dad has always been a loner - No close friends, always wanted to just be in my Mum's company and do nothing else.....although he has always been great at chatting to people. After retirement he didn't bother with hobbies, just looks at his computer, fiddles, watches tv. He has always been perfectly happy and laid back. To his detriment it now causes issues as the lack of responsibility and activity means dementia seems to be catching him up quick. My question: Would getting him to go for a 20 minute walk a day help his cognitive function? Or any other activity that i can introduce him to? Baring in mind that he isn't keen on social activities. Thanks for any input you have....all comments are welcome Sam.
