Singing for the Brain is starting again very soon (see poster below).
People can attend any of the sessions as long as they’re residents of one of the three boroughs of Westminster, Hammersmith & Fulham or Kensington & Chelsea.

Singing for the Brain 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 the brain. Even when many memories are hard to retrieve, music is especially easy to recall.

Emily Raiher, Dementia Action Alliance Coordinator Ealing, will be leading the sessions so get please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or want to send referrals: Emily.Raiher@alzheimers.org.uk
