Dementia

Sharing life with someone living with cognitive impairment

Dementia can slowly or quickly take someone who has a full and rewarding life to a life of dependance on others. For the person living with a loved one with dementia, this can be heart-breaking. Trying to find activities which relate to their past shared experiences or which bring joy and fun into their current world can be a challenge.

Where riding independently together was once a wonderful shared experience, the potential loss of that freedom can have a significant impact on the person with the disease but also on their carers.

Bike riding does not have to stop though. There are options now which can expand the range of bikes suited to dual riding, where the attendant controls the steering, braking and use of the motor.

At EveryBody eBikes, we stock a range of such bikes:

Electric tandem co-pilot 3 which has a stable front suited to older riders living with dementia
The Huka Orthros where you can ride and chat, share body language and fun together still
Worksman Cycles Dual which is ideal for heavier riders or the lighter ones in our lives!

By providing a range of options, you can choose what suits your budget, your space limitations for storing and riding and of course the level of comfort you need to share this amazing experience with your loved one.

You can even use a tandem trailer tricycle which connects to a standard ebike. This is a versatile option which enables the pilot to ride alone sometimes as well as ride with their partner or friend at other times.

Believe us when we say that there are options out there to enable you to still enjoy the outdoor world together and bank even more happy memories of shared experiences.
