Activity Information

If you think your footballing days are over, then think again!

The Dementia Walking football session is designed specifically to help participants manage physical symptoms and other symptoms such as sleep problems, fatigue, mood and mental health.

Walking football sessions will target cardiovascular fitness using high intensity bursts of activity (via walking/jogging) as well as flexibility, balance, movement and coordination. As well as this each session will help develop a regular exercise or physical activity regime while also being with like-minded individuals harnessing camaraderie and peer support. Each session will last for up to 60 minutes including time for short breaks and coaches will ensure the session is geared at a pace that is suitable for all participants attending the day.

All sessions will include with a football memories programme with participants the opportunity to reminisce over refreshments.
