Memory workshop

As part of my Rehabilitation , the helpful chaps at Salford Royal referred me to

the Brain and Spinal Injury Centre, at Stott Lane – just over the railway bridge by the hospital building.

Whilst I continue with the volunteering ‘tween Imperial war Museum North, and Manchester’s Sportcity, the workshop has given me valuable help in how to improve my memory skills.  The group comes from all walks of life, each affected by a Brain Injury or condition.  We talk about different ways of using our memory – sharing tips and tricks.  Today’s session saw the group discussing attention, and we did a few exercises in the session to get a good cognitive workout.

This involved picking out words from a list on a theme and  following numbers given verbally to draw a picture – some may say they’d find dot to dot easy but when the speed increased, it was quite tricky to do.
