Remember that Song is a group for people in the early to moderate stages of dementia and their carers. We meet weekly in term-time to make music together, singing a range of well-known songs and learning new ones in a friendly, relaxed and informal setting.

The aims of the group are to

  • Increase communication
  • Provide a social network around the activity of singing
  • Be positive about dementia and supportive of those who take part

Our musical activities are led by trained musicians who have gained valuable experience through Alzheimer Society’s ‘Singing for the Brain®’project. Volunteers are on hand to assist with the singing, organise the refreshments and help to look after members of the group.

Do I need to be musical?

No musical experience is necessary. Rusty voices are welcome!

Making music together – the health benefits

Music can help to evoke memories, encourage positive feelings, confidence and general well-being. As well as singing, people with dementia and their carers can share experiences and find support at our sessions.

What our group members say:

“Everyone is very friendly and welcoming and I feel supported in my role as a carer”

“Mum and I really appreciate the opportunity for her to mix with her own peer group in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The sessions form an important part of the structure of her week”

“It’s great to have chance to socialize in an environment where the person with dementia is accepted and understood. And we love the singing!”
