SINGING FOR MEMORIES

Singing for Memories is now running again!

 

Singing and music has been shown to often have a positive effect on people who have dementia. As the memory diminishes and communication becomes more difficult music has the power to soothe, stimulate and bring to mind long-forgotten memories.

The sessions start with some basic breathing and gentle exercise to get everyone ready to sing. There is a range of different music and songs, some action songs and the opportunity for people to choose what they’d like to sing.

 

Half way through there is a break for a drink and a chat before going on to finish the afternoon’s routine.

Now that we have restarted our monthly sessions we thought it would be a good time to share a video of our latest Singing for Memories meeting so that potential members can see what is involved.  Some are concerned that they may expose a lack of talent, but they can be assured that none is required – it’s all about participation and enjoyment!

 

You can watch the video below.

Come and join us for an enjoyable afternoon of singing and playing musical instruments!
