This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
1.To evaluate the effects of physical activity programs on function (e.g., activities of daily [ADLs], physical function), cognition, mood, behaviour, and mortality in older persons with dementia.
2.To evaluate these effects on their unpaid caregiver's health, quality of life, and mortality.
3.To evaluate the indirect costs (e.g., number and amount of lost wages by caregiver(s) and direct costs (e.g., use of supportive services, medications, supplies) for the person with dementia and their unpaid caregiver.
4. To make recommendations to health care providers, consumers, and researchers on the effectiveness of physical activity programs in managing the symptoms of dementia in older persons with dementia.
