MOVING TOGETHER (M2G)

A Dyadic Approach for a Remote Physical Activity Intervention in Adults with Alzheimer's Disease and their Caregivers (M2G)

Overview

M2G is a study examining the best ways to promote exercise in adults with dementia and their caregivers.  Adults with dementia will be randomized to one of two exercise programs: a video group or a personal coach group.  In the video group, the person with dementia and their caregiver will be asked to attend 3 group exercise sessions each week; these exercise sessions will be delivered remotely over an iPad. In the personal coach group, the person with dementia and their caregiver will be asked to meet with their personal health education coach 1-2 times a month over the iPad. They will be asked to get more physical activity in on their own. Their health coach will give ideas on how to become more physically activity.
