Alzheimer’s disease involves a loss of memory, and of other aspects of cognitive functioning. Frequently, emotional well-being is also affected. These changes are profoundly life changing both for the person with Alzheimer’s, and for their family. Worldwide, at least 44 million people are living with some form of dementia.
Regular physical activity and social interaction enable everyone to live a fuller life. Individuals who practice the Taoist Tai Chi® arts report improvements in their cognitive function, and in their emotional well-being, improvements they feel result from their Taoist Tai Chi® practice.
January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.
