A care provider has teamed up with the Alzheimer’s Society to run a singing group for people living with dementia.
Singing for the Brain Docklands organised by Canary Wharf based Home Instead and the Alzheimer's Society uses singing to bring people with dementia together to improve brain activity, wellbeing and mood.
The music triggers different parts of the brain with the potential of helping people express feelings and recall memories through vocal warms ups and a variety of songs.
The group meets on the second Wednesday of every month between 2pm to 4pm at the Museum of London Docklands in West India Quay.
Irene, a Singing for the Brain member with dementia, she said: "I love Singing for the Brain which I call singing for the soul. The group lets me meet other people with dementia, which makes me feel that I am not so different after all."
