Tai Chi helps when you teach people with dementia and their caregivers together. An important feature of Tai Chi for Memory is the duration on the lessons. Short lessons accommodate the reduced memory and attention span that some people with dementia can experience. Each lesson has participants doing the movements sitting down. This encourages anyone who cannot stand safely the ability to follow the movements sitting down. There are also brain imaging studies in humans that show Tai Chi can improve cognition and moderately reduce falls risk and change brain function in specific neuronal regions.
