London: Football can help stimulate the recollections of dementia sufferers, a project has found. In a study, researchers at Glasgow Caledonian University found that showing football memorabilia to men with the condition stimulated their memories in a ‘remarkable’ way.
"The men’s lifelong interest in football connected them to their former selves and shared memories. There is very little provided specifically for men with dementia and this is a welcome and positive innovation. "We have had a tremendous response to this research, with Canada considering adopting the same principle with ice hockey. At the moment, I am gathering together a group of researchers to mount a proposal to roll out the concept to other European countries,” Tolson added. ANI
