Music has a valuable role to play in enhancing the quality of life for people living with the dementia, and their carers. It has the power to bring people together in the here and now, providing a way to stay connected with loved ones and carers through shared experiences.
It can enliven, stimulate and enable people to express themselves creatively beyond words. This involvement enables people to be seen for who they are beyond their diagnosis.
At Together dementia Support we use music in our groups in a variety of ways. Be it musical memories, drumming, dancing or in our super talented Gospel Choir that meets on Saturdays to sing their hearts out and have a good time, music is at the heart of many of our activities!
