New Online Singing Group
Managing life with Dementia?
Try a new singing group to lift your spirits
We are very conscious that those who are living with dementia, or affected by it as a family carer, have been some of the hardest hit by the pandemic and lockdown. Singing and music can have a profoundly positive effect on how we feel by improving mood, memory and verbal communication and reducing isolation. So, to help us get through these next few months whilst everyone is being vaccinated, some new Zoom singing sessions are being set up for those who know that singing helps to lift their spirits.
The sessions are being held on Wednesdays at 2pm - 2:45pm (see opposite for dates) Telephone help is available for anyone wanting to set up, or to become more confident on zoom before the project starts.
We are keen to reach families who love singing in the Ipswich, Stowmarket, and Bury areas. There's no need for you to worry about how you sound because you’ll just be singing along at home! All that matters is that we love a good sing!
Who will the sessions be led by?
Tracy Sharp, Mark Coburn and Jill Jennings are all experienced singing leaders with a particular interest in the benefits that singing offers to family carers and to anyone living with memory loss. Based at Red Gables they will be running the zoom sessions as ‘Singing for the Brain’ volunteers (Alzheimer’s Society) in collaboration with local singing charity Music in Our Bones. They are excited about meeting new people who love singing as much as they do!
