Football Memories & Dementia
posted on website -- Sep 19, 2018 --

Football Memories & Dementia is a great charity which supports anyone who is suffering from memory issues.

The group meet regularly within Hibs ground at Easter Road to talk football and about the 'old days' in general. All the evidence suggests these events, apart from being enjoyable and fun, can help assist feelings of isolation and loneliness.

The meetings are open to anyone, not just football supporters. So if anyone has a friend or family member they think could benefit from attending the group, you'd be more than welcome to come along.

Many thanks to retired colleague Ian Omand for forwarding all the details about the work of the group. You can access all the information Ian sent via links below or on the new Football Memories page on the main menu of the Fireaway website.
