It is estimated that approximately 16 million people will be diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease by 2050, and innovative programs will be needed to address the needs of AD patients and their caregivers. The goal of the adaptive exercise program is to provide an education on the benefits of exercise to people with early-stage AD and their caregivers. In addition, the program aims to train caregivers on basic adaptive exercises they can implement with the care receiver. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal seeking funds to develop an adaptive exercise program. The Alzheimer's Association will be the host agency for this project, and the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation was selected as the funding source. Actual submission or funding of this grant proposal was not required for completion of this project.
