as social action
What do we do ?
Revivendo Memórias is a social project that, through research in neurosciences, uses the memory of sport and art to help the elderly, people with dementia and cognitive impairment.
We develop actions such as cognitive activities, leisure, and neuroscience research to provide cognitive stimulation, socialization, social reintegration and improvement in quality of life.
People with dementia and cognitive changes protected with memory loss, which ends up bringing problems in everyday life.
As a result, these people move away from social life, isolating themselves from society, and end up experiencing, less and less, exciting moments in their lives.
What is your
Sports, music, arts, soap operas, cinema, series, etc., are passions that we experience throughout our lives, and reliving these special and remarkable moments can help these people to interact in cognitive activities and also to reinsert them in society.
Talking about remarkable games of your favorite team, listening to music that marked your childhood and adolescence, novels and films that made you feel emotional, poetry and books that touched you deeply, are powerful passions and memories that stay with us for a lifetime.
For people with dementia and cognitive impairment where memory is lost, reliving these moments can be of great help to improve the quality of life and to reinsert them into a social environment again.
