A singing group for people affected by dementia is launching at Alexandra Palace tomorrow (Friday).
Singing for the Brain is a programme developed by Alzheimer’s Society for people with memory
problems. The charity is encouraging anyone affected by dementia, and living in Haringey, to join the group.
The class kicks off with a taster session at the iconic venue and will include performances from local musicians living with dementia. Hornsey and Wood Green MP, Catherine West, will also be attending.
David Tims, a local musician working with Alzheimer’s Society said: “I love to see how singing can support people with dementia to communicate better, improving their mood and leaving them feeling happy.
You may also want to watch:
“Whether you’re living with the condition or caring for someone who is, we‘d love
to welcome you to our group. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t sung in a choir - we don’t require participants to read music or audition, we just want people to enjoy themselves!”
