Mohan’s Story

Amie Mills

By Get Active in partnership with We Are Undefeatable

Over 1 in 4 people live with at least one long-term health condition and these numbers are rising.

We Are Undefeatable is a national campaign to inspire and support people with health conditions to be active. Inspired by the real-life experiences of people with health conditions getting active despite the ups, downs and unpredictability of their condition. 


Mohan was diagnosed with dementia seven years ago. He’s fully mobile and can still crack jokes with family members like he used to, but his memory is not what it once was. He’s “still on his own two feet,” though, which he attributes to walking and staying active even while getting older. His family do everything they can to make sure he is happy and healthy, supporting him and helping him. Mohan stays active with the help of his family. His daughter and granddaughter spend time with him around the house and take him to exercise classes, which he really enjoys. Part of what he likes about his classes is the joking around involved in the games and exercises, making moving more something he looks forward to.
