Together is excited to share the results of our latest Moving Together™ program participant survey!
This report provides the results of a survey sent to all active participants in April 2022. It includes results for overall satisfaction, physical benefits, social benefits, emotional benefits, cognitive benefits, and potential impact on falls and health.
The goal of the research-based, online, Moving Together™ program is to improve the quality of life and help people with memory loss to stay healthy and independent at home.

"As a caregiver, I have learned safe techniques to improve balance, standing from sitting, and ways to have better motion when there is a deficiency in the body. These techniques may insure a safer existence and better life.”
Moving Together™ is designed to help older adults improve their physical function through gentle movements that build slowly in complexity over time.

“We loved the class and will enroll again. We hope to learn more new movements that help our dementia.”
During the class, people participate as a group and do the movements together, in real time. Instructors encourage participants to share what they notice about the movements, which helps the group feel closer to each other.
90% felt less lonely & 100% felt connected to others
“The group becomes family and that is a gift for participants that are primarily homebound.”
