什羅普郡的特殊足球俱樂部支持痴呆症患者

退休護士喬治-巴克利(George Buckley)說,一些來參加會議的人曾經以半職業的標準踢過足球。

喬治-巴克利自2017年以來一直在布里奇諾斯海利的塞文中心舉辦課程,但在冠狀病毒大流行期間不得不停止。

他說,這些課程將在下周恢復,旨在支持人們的精神和身體健康。

"他們回到了當年踢足球的日子,"他說。

巴克利先生作為精神健康護士工作了35年,在他職業生涯的最後十年裡,他專門從事記憶方面的工作。

當他在2017年退休時,他想把他對足球的熱愛和他作為一名精神健康護士的知識結合起來。

他說,一些成員曾經以半職業的標準進行比賽,看到他們樂在其中,真是太好了。

"他說:"我們以小組形式開始,做一些溫和的伸展運動,有些人可以根據他們的行動能力坐下來做。

會議期間的許多活動旨在幫助心理協調,因為球員在錐體周圍運球,並在會議結束時進行點球大戰。

巴克利先生說,照顧者也被邀請參加活動,並認識類似情況的人。

這些課程將在下周恢復,並在 "友好的氣氛 "下喝咖啡。


Retired nurse George Buckley said some of the people who come to the sessions used to play football to a semi-professional standard

George Buckley has run sessions at the Severn Centre in Highley, Bridgnorth, since 2017, but had to stop during the coronavirus pandemic.

He said sessions, which are set to resume next week, aim to support people's mental and physical wellbeing.

"They go back to the days of when they were playing football," he said.

Mr Buckley worked as a mental health nurse for 35 years and during the last ten years of his career specialised in memory.

When he retired in 2017, he wanted to combine his love for football with his knowledge of being a mental health nurse.

He said some of the members used to play to a semi-professional standard and it was great to see them enjoying themselves.

"We start as a group, doing some gentle stretches, some can do them sitting down depending on their mobility," he said.

Many of the activities during the sessions are aimed to help with mental coordination as players dribble the ball around cones and have a penalty shootout at the end of the session.

Carers are also invited to take part, Mr Buckley said, and meet people in similar situations.

The sessions will resume next week and are followed by a coffee in a "friendly atmosphere".
