An inspiring user meeting about dementia
How do you motivate people living with dementia to exercise besides therapy? Last week, our user meeting focussed on this topic in combination with the role of virtual therapy. A research about exergaming for people living with dementia was presented besides all new developments of the SilverFit systems. Ilona Grandia (physical trainer at St. Jozefoord, the Netherlands) and Loes de Waal (activity coordinator at de Rijnhoven, the Netherlands) shared their experiences on using and implementing the SilverFit Alois and the SilverFit Mile. During the next round, people could choose one of the following workshops: thinking out of the box, assisting a resident with dementia, explaining the importance of exercise to colleagues, or a user training of the SilverFit or the SilverFit Alois. As many care professionals told us: "an informative and inspiring meeting!"
