Service summary

Singing together in a supportive, friendly group is uplifting, enjoyable and hugely therapeutic for people living with dementia and carers alike.

Music for the Mind builds on the fact that music appears to 'unlock' parts of the brain and people often retain song words and melodies longer than other memories. The sessions are carefully structured to be both stimulating and fun. Although well-loved classics are part of the mix, we also learn new songs, sing rhymes and action songs that help physical co-ordination, and tackle harmonies, rounds and partner songs.

Client groups

The groups are designed for the person with dementia and a family carer to attend together, although people can also come on their own or with a support worker. You do not have to be a good singer to take part!
