L'intervento psicomotorio con persone affette da demenza We report the outcome of a sample survey on elderly people suffering from dementia in which we focus on the benefits achieved both on behaviour and mood level. The psychomotor intervention is constructed on a therapeutical treatment that improves the self advocacy on action and communication. This cure develops on the privileged level of expressiveness and sentiment that in the relationship come out through gesture and movement. The meeting metaphor takes its place in a present time, therefore well known, and draws a space where both psychomotor therapist and patient, try out together the “corporeity” as an internal element lived and felt. The psychomotor recovery of the value of poses, postures, balances and theirs changes in the relationship led to a better understanding of the behaviour of the patient whose symptom, usually suppressed by pharmacological therapy, is the only way to communicate with the world.
