Welcome, Friends! We are excited to host our first virtual Caregiver Forum Discussion—Let’s Get Moving! This month’s topic will be focused on how to get your loved one moving with helpful tips and tricks and will last from 5:00 pm to 6:00 PDT. To get the conversation started, here is a helpful idea:
Start with familiar activities that were once enjoyed by your loved one. Walking, dancing, gardening, and even helping with laundry can help get someone moving! Familiarity can help create a sense of comfort and motivation, which can help get your loved one engaged in physical activity.
