Catch-up – Sporting reminiscence in dementia by Dr Cara Sass

Hosted by Adam Smith

In this webinar Dr Cara Sass, Research Fellow at the University of Leeds discusses the findings of her PhD research, exploring the benefits of sporing reminiscence on people living and how this can be delivered effectively. This was an ethnographic study carried out with Sporting Memories groups in the north of England to explore the potential benefits of sports-focused group reminiscence and gently physical activities for men.

Cara’s findings highlighted some of the mechanisms to improving wellbeing for men living with dementia and supporting accompanying relatives. The study additionally also identified a number of considerations for similar agencies wishing to develop post-diagnostic support which is more appealing and inclusive to men.
