Football Memories is an innovative partnership between Alzheimer Scotland and the Scottish Football Museum at Hampden Park. There are over 84,000 people in Scotland with dementia, the equivalent of every spectator on an average Scottish football weekend.
Football images and memorabilia are used as reminiscence therapy for people with dementia and other memory problems. Some of the recall is fascinating and several stories are being recorded for use with future generations of football supporters.
Michael White, Alzheimer Scotland Football Memories project manager said:
“Thousands of people with dementia love their football and Football Memories harnesses that passion for the game to improve their lives. We are therefore delighted to have the chance to take part in a charity weekend launched by Weatherseal & the SPL.”
