Interventions/Control_1 The elderly with dementia who live in the facility, will be divided into three groups according by the randomized numerical table method: Tai Chi group, conventional exercise group, and control group, fo 12 weeks.
Tai Chi group: 8 Simple Tai Chi will be choosed, and one hour after breakfast, a professional instructor with more than five years of teaching experience or a qualification will teach the Type 8 Simple Tai Chi Movement in a group. Researchers and research assistants watch over the movement to ensure the safety of the elderly with dementia. Tai Chi intervention is performed three times a week for 50 minutes. Warm-up exercise for 5 minutes (turn the ankle and wrist, turn the waist, lightly loosen, such as flexion of the knee.) It is to expand the range of motion further while moving. From dynamic stretching to close to the movement of the main movement), Tai Chi is performed for 40 minutes. Adjust the range and strength you can to match the level of individual physical function and activity ability) and cool down exercise for 5 minutes (stretch slowly to loosen muscles. Stretch with the strength to be comfortable slowly without overdoing it. Stretch not only the lower body centered on the foot, but also the upper body.)
Interventions/Control_2 Conventional exercise group: 1 hour after breakfast, instructors with training guidance history of 5 years or more to teach conventional exercise, such as aerobic exercise in a group. Researchers and research assistants watch over the movement to ensure the safety of the elderly with dementia. Intervention by conventional motion is carried out three times a week for 50 minutes. Warm-up exercise for 5 minutes (same as Tai Chi group), conventional exercise such as aerobic exercise for 40 minutes, for the elderly, less burden, it is said that the effect of loosening the muscle and improvement of blood flow in a simple exercise can be expected. (The strength training performed sitting on a chair is done for 10 minutes, the strength training performed standing for 10 minutes, the radio gymnastics first and second for 10 minutes, and the walk according to the music for 10 minutes.) Adjust the range and intensity you can to match the level of individual physical function and activity ability), and perform a cooldown exercise for 5 minutes (same as Tai Chi group).
Interventions/Control_3 Control group: The research period is asked to continue the same life as usual without intervention. After the research is complete, the elderly are free to choose Tai Chi or conventional exercise and conduct it for 12 weeks.
