Minds in Motion

The Minds in Motion® Winnipeg program combines physical activity, socialization and mental stimulation for people living with early to mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease, or another dementia,
to enjoy with a family member or community care partner.

At the Minds in Motion® program you will…

• Be physically active
• Meet and socialize with other people living with dementia and their care partners
• Enjoy mentally stimulating activities to enhance your brain health
• Receive emotional and educational support about dementia and services, as needed

Is the Minds in Motion® program for me?

The Minds in Motion® program is designed for people with early to mid-stage symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. Early symptoms of dementia may include memory
loss, confusion, communication difficulties and changes in mood and behaviour.

What can I expect?

The two-hour weekly program runs for eight weeks and is divided into the following components:

• A certified fitness instructor leads the physical activity session (up to 50 minutes)
• Alzheimer Society of Manitoba staff and volunteers lead the mental stimulation session (up to 50 minutes)
• Participants enjoy a healthful refreshment break while socializing with other participants
