Dad died just two months ago and already she is telling me that she wants to move to an assisted living place that they once looked at.

CONCLUSIONS: The type and characteristics of CS exercises have an impact on the engagement level of AD patients with mild to moderate dementia. Further studies are necessary to better understand which characteristics of the exercises affect the engagement of the patient according to their particularities. This kind of study may help the design of CS sessions and improve the results obtained. PMID: 31940610 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
