‘Singing for the Brain’ is a service which uses singing to bring people together in a friendly and stimulating social environment.

Singing is not only an enjoyable activity, it can also provide a way for people with dementia, along with their carers, to express themselves and socialise with others in a fun and supportive group.

Hidden in the fun are activities which build on the well-known preserved memory for song and music in retrieve, music is especially easy to recall.

On a weekly basis ‘Singing for the Brain’ starts at 10am with light refreshments and is followed at 10.30 with an hour of singing and musical activities.

It is led by Lindy Platt, a retired primary school teacher, and supported financially by the Trustees of Peggy Dodd. It is run in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Society.
