There are currently over 670 groups across England, Scotland and Wales. The tea parties are a way for older people to make friends, get to know people in their community and enjoy an outing once a month with a small group of local friends.

If you are an older person who would like to try a tea party, or if you know someone who would benefit from coming along, then visit the Contact The Elderly website.

Loneliness and social isolation is an issue that can be solved by community action. Through the ‘Be Our Guest’ campaign, they are urging people to look out for older people that they know or work with to let them know about our free, monthly tea parties.

Success of the National Women’s Sports Teams and Disability Sport

At the moment it is all about Girl Power!  The English women’s sports teams have recently been doing much better than the men’s teams as they have so far had massive success in the main sporting events. The ladies have recently won the Cricket World Cup, qualified for the semi-finals of the European Football Cup (taking place this Thursday) and are the reigning champions of the Rugby Six Nations and the Rugby World Cup.

“The men’s game is embarrassingly cynical, with diving and faking injury if someone so much as farts in their general direction. Women’s football is far more phlegmatic. A study shows that on average, men stay down 30 seconds longer than women after being fouled. It’s the sporting equivalent of us crying “man flu” the moment we get a slight sniffle. The women’s game also features more actual action. The same study found that men take 10 seconds longer to get off the field when substituted and 30 seconds longer celebrating a goal.” The Telegraph

Also this year Britain’s Jordanne Whiley has revealed she won her fourth straight Wimbledontennis women’s wheelchair doubles title while 11 weeks pregnant!  She and Japanese partner Yui Kamiji beat Marjolein Buis and Diede de Groot in the final at Wimbledon on 16th July.

WheelPower

wheelpowerWheelPower is the national disability sports organisation for wheelchair sport and provides sporting opportunities for men, women and children with physical impairments to take part in a number of sports, including athletics.  Based at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, the birthplace of the Paralympic Games, WheelPower organises a number of sports events at junior and adult level to introduce disabled people to sport.  These include the annual National Junior Games, Inter Spinal Unit Games and National Championships.

Buying a computer is better than knitting to ward off dementia

A recent study of nearly 2,000 over-70s by the Mayo Clinic in the US looked at how everyday computeractivities could ward off mental decline for older people over a four year period.

Silver surfers in their 70s are 42 per cent less likely to develop the mental problems which precede dementia, compared to technophobes.  Although knitting was found to have some benefit – reducing the risk of memory problems by 16 per cent – the pastime was nowhere near as effective as using a computer for as little as once a week.

“The results show the importance of keeping the mind active as we age,” said study author Dr Janina Krell-Roesch, of Mayo Clinic in Arizona.

It is thought that mentally stimulating activities help build up a ‘cognitive reserve’ of new brain cells and neural connections which offset deterioration cause by ageing.

Simply reading a magazine regularly was found to lower the chance of neurodegeneration by 30 per cent. Completing crosswords or other puzzles reduces the chance of neurodegeneration by 14 per cent.

People normally develop mild cognitive impairment before dementia, so preventing its onset is likely to delay conditions like Alzheimer’s disease.

People who engaged in social activities were 23 percent less likely to develop memory problems than those who did not engage in social activities.

For more information on this please visit the Mayo Clinic website.

If you or somebody you know suffers from memory loss or dementia please visit our www.clootietree.com for underwear and nightwear designed to help those with dementia.
