Big Hearts’ reminiscence programme is designed to help older people recall fond memories from the past, using a set of archived images and themed memorabilia.
By stimulating memories and sharing stories, our weekly groups help build positive social connections between participants.
The project is running twice a week at Tynecastle Park in our dedicated community space ‘The Shed’.
Edinburgh and Football Memories are led by a team of trained Big Hearts volunteers and welcome guests from a wide range of backgrounds, including people living with dementia, stroke survivors, care homes patients and over 65s at high risk of loneliness.
Following the latest Government guidance, we hope to offer a gradual return to small groups to attend in our new community space ‘The Shed‘ from 24th August 2021. Sessions are free to attend and include a hot drink and a pie/cake.
