Benefits of being socially active

5 ways to support your loved one living with
Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

Staying socially active and engaging with friends and family on a regular basis can help support brain health for loved ones living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. 

  1. Social interaction may slow symptoms and cognitive decline associated with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
  2. Individuals living with dementia may revert to living in the past, but socialization can provide structure and help the brain connect to the present.
  3. Social interaction and regular physical activity help keep the blood flowing and can increase the chemicals that protect the brain.
  1. Staying socially engaged can help boost self-esteem, which may translate to better eating habits, more exercise, and better sleep.
  2. Increased social engagement can help minimize an individual’s sense of loneliness, isolation, stress, and other factors that may contribute to cognitive decline.
