A new chair-based gymnastics exercise programme has significant benefits for people with dementia, says a report.

More than 150 people have taken part in the Love to Move scheme run by the British Gymnastics Foundation (BGF).

And research by Age UK found the scheme to have “demonstrable benefits in the physical, emotional and cognitive aspects of older people”.

The organisers now aim to train more people to deliver the programme and make it more widely available.
