AbstractPhysical activity has been shown to provide benefits for people with dementia and their caregivers, in relation to physical health, psychological well-being, function, and cognition. The aim of this evaluation is to explore the current literature through a scoping review on the effect of golf on people with dementia and their caregivers, to carry out a qualitative study of caregivers of people with dementia playing golf, and outline protocol for a quantitative study. The resulting thematic analysis concluded a beneficial effect of a dementia-friendly golf programme on people with dementia and their caregivers, particularly through the provision of respite for the caregivers and promoting and providing well-being.
