This project will test the feasibility, effectiveness, and sustainability of an individualized small-group exercise program called EnhanceMobility (EM) within Serendipity Adult Day Program in Anchorage. EM draws on evidence-based exercise interventions and has been developed for individuals with mild to moderate dementia. This pilot study will investigate the application of EM for persons with dementia, caregivers, and service providers given the unique geographic and climatic challenges of Alaska. If successful, EM has the potential for widespread dissemination to enhance services provided by Adult Day programs across Alaska.
