There is mounting evidence that exercise has a
role in falls prevention in people with dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
A recent review of randomised controlled trials confirmed that well-designed exercise programs that safely challenge balance and involve three hours of exercise per week, are most effective for older people living in the general community.
Remember to see your physiotherapist if you are not sure about the best approach for you. If you or someone you know is living with dementia or Parkinson’s disease, find a physio near you specialising in treatment of older patients or those with neurological conditions.
