If you have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, ask your doctor for recommendations of support organizations. Joining a support organization provides you with resources to stay physically, mentally, and socially active. The combination of physical, cognitive, and social stimulation can greatly improve your quality of life.
For more information on staying active after the diagnosis, watch this video. You’ll hear the story of Linda, a woman who joined the Alzheimer’s Society after learning that she had vascular dementia. Although she was initially hesitant, she now regularly enjoys activities such as art classes and the choir.
