The sharing of memories and personal stories relating to cricket and other sports has been proven to deliver many positive benefits to the quality of life of people living with dementia and their carers.
Do you know someone who is living with dementia and has an interest in cricket, either as a former player or just as a spectator? They are sure to have vivid memories of games, characters, incidents and humourous tales to speak of. They may even possess items of memorabilia which would stimulate discussion among other group members.
If so, they might be interested in coming along to the Cricket Memories which is specifically aimed at those living with dementia.
This is the first group to be set up in the North-East of Scotland, but is an addition to many which are active throughout the country.
The group will be run by volunteers from both Alzheimer Scotland and Aberdeenshire Cricket Club, meeting once a month throughout the year, to stimulate discussion, form new friendships and, most importantly, to have FUN!
