Forget Me Notts
Forget Me Notts is a project which uses sport as a vehicle for reminiscence and interaction between people with dementia, their carers and those experiencing isolation and loneliness.
The programme gives those with dementia the chance to express themselves and remain active both mentally and physically.
Carers who attend also have the opportunity to establish an informal support network with others who can empathise with their situation through experience.
The sessions are held at Rushcliffe Arena, Melbourne Park, Edwalton Gold Club and Trent Bridge Café. Volunteers at the sessions are Dementia Friends Aware.
