From Alzheimer Scotland, Angus Services Action on Dementia Newsletter.
“Do you know someone who is interested in football? We are looking for volunteers to help in the development of a national Football Memories project within Angus. Volunteers should have a passion for football as using memories of the game does help improve the lives of people with dementia and memory problems. The use of images in Football Memories has been shown to improve recognition, understanding, recall and lead to discussion and informed comment. The pictures can trigger fantastic memories and genuine excitement and interest. Sessions usually last between 60 and 90 minutes and there is a break at ‘half time’ for refreshments. Some groups have even opted for the more traditional football snack of pie and Bovril. For further information please contact Pat Brodlie, Angus Service Manager on 01241 431770.”
Is this another way of someone using a talent? If so contact Pat. She’d be delighted to hear from you.
