People living with dementia and their carers can hit the high notes when Alzheimer’s Society launches a new service in Lingfield. The new singing group is called Singing for the Brain ® and is a programme developed by Alzheimer’s Society for people with memory problems. The programme promotes communication through singing which can help with articulation, concentration, focus and motivation. Specially trained facilitators deliver a varied programme of vocal, rhythmic and gentle physical exercise and dance, along with songs from different eras and styles.
The group, funded by Tandridge Trust, Arts Partnership Surrey and Tandridge District Council, will be held at Lingfield and Dormansland Community Centre fortnightly from Monday 5th October. To find out more about attending Singing for the Brain ® and other services in the area call Alzheimer’s Society on 01932 855582 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
