Sporting Memories Foundation Scotland became the first of its kind to be dedicated to the development and use of sports reminiscence, inclusive physical activities and intergenerational activities to support isolated older people across the country. The Sporting Memories Foundation Scotland is the charitable arm of award winning Sporting Memories Network Scotland, a social enterprise that runs weekly sporting memories groups, that brings together older people living with long term conditions such as dementia through sporting reminiscence and physical activities, with the aim of improving well-being and reducing loneliness and social isolation.
Using images of sport, articles and memorabilia, older people are assisted to stay connected to their friends and communities, cognitively stimulated and physically active.
A wealth of evidence on ageing well has highlighted the impact remaining connected to friends, family and communities, remaining cognitively stimulated and physically active can have on our health and wellbeing. Sporting Memories clubs and groups have proven to help participants, many of whom are living with dementia to do just this.
