RCN Congress 2017 - highlighting the link between frailty & loneliness

Tuesday 16 May 2017

The delegates who attended this week's Royal College of Nurses (RCN) Congress 2017 understand more than most the importance of supporting people with dementia to live their lives to the fullest.

As DAA members RCN commit to sharing best practice. At Congress they shared a video with delegates created in partnership with the DAA and Leyton Orient Football Club about the health benefits of 'Walking Football.' 

The video highlights the link between frailty and loneliness, and how walking football can bring people together. There are strong links to dementia in the film.

You can view the film below, and find out more RCN Congress 2017 on their website.
