ExerciseExercise, such as walking or swimming, can also relieve symptoms of depression
associated with Alzheimer's disease. Exercise is most effective when it is
combined with teaching caregivers how to work through behavioral problems with
the person who has Alzheimer's disease.
Another way a caregiver can try to reduce agitation in a person who has Alzheimer's disease is to
play soothing music during meals
and when the caregiver is helping with bathing.
