Abstract
There is growing recognition of the benefits to care home residents, particularly those with dementia, of meaningful activities that reflect their interests and preferences. Football-based reminiscence activities are gaining attention and are thought to be of particular interest to men, many of whom disengage in activities that they associate with female interests. Despite the growing popularity of football-based reminiscence there is a lack of evidence-informed guidance over methods of delivery and understanding about the training required to deliver such interventions. This is contrary to care home demographics that reflect an increasing number of residents with dementia. With this context in mind, the pilot study was developed to contribute to the sparse evidence base for football reminiscence with male care home residents who have dementia
