The practice of physical activity, more specifically postural balance exercises, is an intervention that improves gait performance in the elderly. Among patients with Alzheimer's disease, it seems that physical exercice also improves cognitive performance, reduces the loss of autonomy and independence in activities of daily living. All these effects may reduce the caregiver burden.
Despite several initiatives in France, no study has been carried out to test the adherence to postural balance exercises and to examine the benefits on older AD patients and their caregiver.
The main objective of this study is to measure the adherence to "Siel bleu" balance exercises in patients with Alzheimer's disease, while taking into account the disease stages.
