Julie has danced her whole life, and taught at her own dance school for over 30 years. When she developed Alzheimer’s, however, she had a harder time teaching and staying active in the way she always loved. Her husband, Peter, has supported her as they’ve adjusted to how life is changing. Together, they’ve taken up running, which allows them to both stay active and socialise with the wider community.

How Julie Gets Moving
Julie and Peter have taken up running with a running club in their local community. They started by using a couch to 5K app, which helped them build up to the jogs they do today. The running provides both of them with a way to keep moving and has also linked them up with new friends, providing additional support.
