The purpose of the study is to determine if participation in an exercise program helps memory loss from getting worse, and if it improves daily functioning and attitudes of those with probable Alzheimer's disease. It will involve participation of both the person with memory loss and someone who knows their daily activities (e.g., husband, wife, adult child, or caregiver).
Currently, there is no cure for the memory loss associated with Alzheimer's disease, though some medications can help it from getting worse. The research study will help to answer the question if participation in an exercise program helps memory loss from getting worse, and if it improves daily functioning and attitudes of those with probable Alzheimer's disease. It will involve participation of both the person with memory loss and someone who knows their daily activities.
The research study is a randomized-control trial: some participants will be picked to participate in the exercise program, while others will not. Their memory, thinking abilities, activities, and attitudes will be measured at baseline and follow-up assessment 5-6 months later. Participants are in good health, and are treated with a cholinesterase inhibitor for memory loss (standard treatment).

Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Abnormal structures located chiefly in distal dendrites and, along with NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES and SENILE PLAQUES, constitute the three morphological hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE. Neuropil threads are made up of straight and paired helical filaments which consist of abnormally phosphorylated microtubule-associated tau proteins. It has been suggested that the threads have a major role in the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer disease.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent or treat ALZHEIMER DISEASE.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
