Stevenage FC Foundation launch ‘Boro Bygones’ a reminiscence programme for people living with Dementia and their carers.
Dementia is fast becoming the defining health issue of our time, with the number of people living with the condition projected to increase rapidly over the coming years and currently with no treatment to prevent, slow or cure the underlying disease.
Boro Bygones is a reminiscence programme aimed at those living with mild to moderate dementia and has kindly been funded by the Hertfordshire Sport and Physical Activity Partnership with support from the University of Hertfordshire.
The sessions will use a host of Stevenage FC memorabilia and magic moments to stimulate the senses, alongside reintroducing some physical activity in the form of chair-based exercises and table football. We will also have guest speakers attending the sessions to assist in the recollection of memories.
These free sessions will run from 2 – 4pm on Thursday afternoons starting on the 18th of January 2024, and will take place in the Community Hub at the Lamex Stadium. Refreshments will also be available throughout.
We hope to take all participants and their carers on a stimulating, entertaining and engaging journey through the decades with this programme and make a positive difference in these people’s lives.
