Staying Active It’s important to stay active when living with early Alzheimer’s disease. Continuing to do all the things a person living with Alzheimer’s disease enjoys, such as spending time with family, socialising with friends and keeping up with hobbies are all encouraged. Many people also take up new activities which they find very rewarding. Whether it’s going to an art class, learning to sing or taking up fishing, there’s something to suit everyone. People may often discover a creative side that they never knew they had before.
