The Scottish Football Reminiscence Partnership Public Conference is an event to share the findings and celebrate the success of the AHRC & SFC funded Knowledge Exchange Project.
"Harnessing the Heritage of Football: Creating Meaningful Activities and Therapeutic Work with People with Dementia."
This novel project has demonstrated the potential of football focussed reminiscence, creatively exploring how a fusion between cultural heritage, scientific insights, design and performing arts can benefit and improve the lives of people with dementia and their family carers.
If you are a practitioner from Health or Social Care who works with people with dementia, an informal or paid carer, a researcher or educator with an interest in dementia care and reminiscence work, this day will be of particular interest to you. (see below for information on a day for people with dementia and their family carers)
The event will include talks, a Knowledge Exchange Cafe, the premier of "I left my heart" a dramatic piece based on our findings by playwright and broadcaster Padraig Coyle, performed in the Scottish national Football Museum. Other highlights include a demonstration of an interactive prototype digital 'Memory Cube' deigned by collaborators at Northumbria University and Quilting Memories.
Speakers include Mr Henry Simmons , CEO of Alzheimer Scotland; Professor John Starr, from the Scottish Dementia Clinical Research Network -SDCRN; Professor Debbie Tolson, Professor of Gerontological Nursing at Glasgow Caledonian University & Professor Hugh O'Donnell, Glasgow School for Business & Society, Glasgow Caledonian University.
In addition we expect a representative from the Scottish Government to attend and formally open the Alzheimer’s Scotland Reminiscence Hub at Hampden Park. Our partners in Memories FC (Alzheimer Scotland and the Scottish Football Museum) were successful in obtaining a Postcode Lottery grant to develop this facility at Hampden Park.
We hope that you will be able to attend this day and look forward to sending you the detailed programme as soon as you have registered.
The second day of our public conference will take place on Friday 30th November 2012. This day is for people with dementia, carers and the public who have an interest in reminiscence.
This online registration is for Day 1 only.
Please note a separate day specifically tailored for people with dementia and their family carers will happen on Friday 30th November 12.30pm-4.00pm
Memories FC is a partnership between Glasgow Caledonian University, Alzheimer Scotland, The Scottish Football Museum, European Former Players Association and the University of the West of Scotland & St Louis University, USA
