The Memories Group is a weekly session for people in the local region suffering with Dementia or Alzheimer’s.
One in three people will develop Dementia in their lifetime. There are around 3,300 people living with the illness in our region, and this is expected to double over the next 30 years.
The Albion Foundation have teamed up with the NHS to create the ‘Memories Group’, a programme for football fans suffering with Alzheimer’s and Dementia. The free-to-attend weekly session at The Hawthorns, offer a safe and welcoming space for anyone locally who is suffering with these diseases. The group enjoy reminiscing and sharing stories of the Black Country, and of course West Bromwich Albion, with John Homer and sometimes a former player, triggering fond memories for the group.
To support families who are going through a difficult time dealing with Dementia and Alzheimer’s we keep the Memories group sessions free to attend. If you, or you know of someone who would benefit from the Memories Group find out more or book a place on an upcoming session by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
