DEMENTIA SINGS OUT
CHECK US OUT on Facebook, Youtube and via our website.
The recent publicity afforded the amazing composer Paul Harvey who is living with
dementia has once again reminded us all of the benefits of music. Dementia Sings Out is a
Northamptonshire-based charity, started in August 2019, which runs FREE weekly singing
sessions for people living Dementia. Although we used to meet each Thursday in person, pre
Covid, we have resolutely refused to bow to the pressures of the pandemic restrictions and
close down this thriving and much-needed community service. We have adapted our
activities to Zoom Thursday morning sessions which are conducted by Musical Director
Gareth Fuller on-line from his Wellingborough studio assisted by the trustees and
supporters. We have also produced new lyric booklets and we personally distribute them to
individuals and Care Homes across the county. For those struggling with the challenges of
technology we can also provide invaluable assistance with on-line access. Consequently,
Dementia Sings Out continues, against all of the odds, with the help of selfless carers, to
highlight and promote the invaluable contribution to mental wellbeing which music and
singing provide to so many people and their carers across the community.
Anyone is welcome, whether you are living with dementia or not, whether you are lonely or,
like many of us, simply wanting to lose ourselves in uplifting soul, country, gospel or
Motown classics during 45 minutes of sheer joy each Thursday morning in order to forget
COME AND JOIN US EACH THURSDAY MORNING AT 10.30 A.M.
