Music can play a vital role in daily care for people living with dementia. It stirs memories, reduces agitation and creates moments of joyful connection. This new 12 week course from The Brain Charity is designed to do all of that, even while live workshops are unable to go ahead.
Over the past few months, the dementia project team at The Brian Charity has been busy preparing and filming the music-based therapy workshops they usually offer in the community, so that they can be shared in households and care homes all over the UK.
The 12-week video programme is now complete and available! It’s made up of singing workshops, with a focus on speech and language therapy, as well as dance workshops, coupled with physiotherapy. All of these are set to familiar classic tunes to keep participants engaged.
Anyone who takes part will receive one email per week containing a specialist exercise video and guidance on how to join in safely. During the 12 weeks, you will also have the opportunity to book a consultation with a speech and language therapist or physiotherapist from the charity, to discuss any specific issues that you, or the person you care for, might be facing.
