Mohan's Story

Mohan's Story

I’m still on my own two feet.

Mohan was diagnosed with dementia seven years ago. He’s fully mobile and still cracks jokes with family members like he used to, but his memory is not what it once was. As he says, he’s “still on his own two feet,” though, which he attributes to walking and staying active even while getting older. His family do everything they can to make sure he is happy and healthy, supporting him and helping him.

How Mohan Gets Moving

Mohan stays active with the help of his family. His daughter and granddaughter spend time with him around the house and take him to exercise classes, which he really enjoys. Part of what he likes about his classes is the joking around involved in the games and exercises, making moving more something he looks forward to.
