Speaking as a medical professional here, my understanding about current Alzheimer's research is that activities that engage the brain in creative/constructive ways can mitigate mild to moderate Alzheimer's, however it does not actually slow the progression of the disease.Once Alzheimer's reaches it's latter stages, there is really nothing that can be done to improve the function.This is not to say it's hopeless, the research shows that people who do engage their brains and bodies with the more mild Alzheimer's symptoms end up having an overall better quality-of-life.
