Mindful Music - A weekly lift for the soul

Mindful Music is a small community group, established in 2017 to provide weekly singing sessions aimed at those living at home with dementia and their carers. The songs we sing are many and varied; new and exciting plus old favourites, incorporating harmonies and small movements. Each themed session is designed to enhance physical and emotional well-being. We recognise the impact of loneliness, plus the frustrations and lack of stimulation often associated with this cohort of our society, not to mention the resulting effect this has on their carers. The publicised effects of music on the brain are regularly observed, leaving us with a smile on face, a song whirling in our head, and looking forward to the next week. Covid 19 has meant us evolving to ‘online’ sessions using the Zoom application but it is hoped to be able to resume ‘in person’ sessions when restrictions are eased. Currently there is space for newcomers and a ‘Taster Session’ is being offered for anyone who thinks they would benefit from their services.
