Tai Chi study 'could help people with dementia'

A new project by Bournemouth University is looking into the benefits of the Chinese martial art Tai Chi for people living with dementia.

Following a successful pilot in 2016, researchers now hope a larger study will prove the exercise can slow the condition down.

Tai Chi combines deep breathing and relaxation with flowing repetitive movements.

Participants will take part in a 20-week course that is taking place across Hampshire and Dorset.
