The Memories Scotland Memory Group meets monthly at Bearsden Library. The group gathers on the last Wednesday of the month from 2pm to 3:30pm. All are welcome for friendly conversation and reminiscence about the past. Contact Bearsden Library for more info and to book a free place – tel 0141 777 3021.
Our Scotland-wide network of Memory Groups use historical images, artefacts, film and audio from the Memories Scotland archive to aid reminiscence and prompt conversation during facilitated sessions. In sharing their experiences and stories, group participants and facilitators report a range of positive outcomes. This can include anything from connecting with others to renewed self-esteem and increased confidence. And as well as being dementia-friendly, Memory Groups are inclusive and open to all – providing a forum for participants to make connections with the past, themselves and each other. Online access will be provided where possible for those unable to meet in person.
