World dementia day 2022: WZC Domino on a visit at KAA Gent

On the eve of World Dementia Day, KAA Gent welcomed 25 residents of Domino residential care center to the Ghelamco Arena.

“Besides medical care, of course, we attach great importance to psychosocial care. Social contact with fellow residents or family and friends is an essential part of well-being, especially for people with dementia. For many, a visit to KAA Gent evokes fond memories. This visit especially shows what is still possible in terms of experience after a diagnosis of dementia.”

Piet Lampaert, chairman of Domino vzw

AVS made a beautiful report on the visit to the Ghelamco Arena of Domino residential care centre.

For Domino’s residents, it was a special day. They had their jersey, scarf or flag ready for the visit. Led by stadium guides from the KAA Gent Foundation, they were given a comprehensive tour of the Ghelamco Arena, which also demonstrated the stadium’s accessibility for supporters with disabilities.

Special thanks to Tarik Tissoudali who took the time to greet our special guests.
