basebALZ

BasebALZ, also referred to as “Talking Baseball”, uses baseball as a topic for reminiscence therapy. Reminiscence therapy is an approach to improve the well-being of Alzheimer’s patients by invoking and discussing their memories of the past. The Society of American Baseball Research (SABR) LA chapter and Alzheimer’s Los Angeles continue to offer BasebALZ as an ongoing program.
