Bob Laventure and Claudine Aherne have written three articles for the ICAA on working with people living with Dementia. The BHFNC are currently developing a programme to support those coordinating and delivering services and physical activity programmes for people living with dementia in line with the publication of the National Dementia Strategy in England (and similar plans in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales).
The programme will include:
• The evidence base for physical activity and people living with dementia;
• Awareness raising (including evidence based fact sheets);
• Planning and policy documents consistent with the National Dementia Strategies; and
• Research into physical activity training opportunities.
The articles above were published in the Journal on Active Aging, a publication of the International Council on Active Ageing (www.icaa.cc), and are posted here with permission.
