Help people with Alzheimer’s stay healthy this_year

Being active and eating healthy foods can help people with Alzheimer’s feel better. Here are some tips to help a person with Alzheimer’s maintain healthy habits:
  • Buy healthy foods such as vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain products. Be sure to buy foods that the person likes and can eat.
  • Give the person choices about what to eat – for example, “Would you like green beans or salad?”
  • Break exercises into simple, easy-to-follow steps.
  • Be realistic about how much activity can be done at one time. Several 10-minute “mini-workouts” may be best.
  • Take a walk together each day. Exercise is good for caregivers, too!
