Music for well-being for people with dementia and their carers - small group

Monthly group, held on the fourth Wednesday of every month at Linden House Care Home.  

Time:  14.00-15.30

This music group run by Frances Attwood is for those who enjoy a quiet music experience.  (There is another monthly music group which is held at Gracewell in Sway, which is bigger - for those who enjoy making music together.)

"Music connects us with others and our past, and there is evidence that the ability to engage in music is retained when other mental faculties may have failed."  

Music really bridges the gap, it's a wonderful tonic which can bring back joy and self esteem to people who are going through the frightening experience of gradually losing the ability to communicate, and brief relief and respite to the people who care for them.

Wordsheets are provided, some like to use them, many don't need them - people with dementia tend to "remember" the words of favourite songs, deeply ingrained from long ago.

More information here about the two music groups which are now running in the Lymington area for people with dementia and their carers.

Please note this group is currently full - please contact Frances if you'd like to be on the waiting list for when spaces become available
