Our first group session of Singing By Heart commences at 2pm on Thursday 3rd February (and then the first Thursday of the month) at South Harrow Baptist Church, for those living with dementia and their carers. All welcome!
The power of music, especially singing, to unlock memories is an increasingly key feature of dementia care as it seems to access parts of the brain that remain unaffected by the progression of dementia.
‘Singing By Heart’ uses a mixture of secular and religious songs which span the decades. Every song is introduced by a relevant scripture verse and concluded with a prayer. The sessions are designed to encourage communication, recollection of memories, and fun for those taking part. It is also hoped carers will find the sessions beneficial through enabling time for them to relax, make friends and share experiences.
COVID guidelines will be followed. We will have chairs spaced out, room ventilated and plenty of hand sanitiser!
If you know anyone who would benefit from these sessions please let them know!
2021 has been a difficult year and every child deserves to end it with a happy Christmas and because of your generous donations we have been able to give over 700 children in the local area receive gifts for Christmas.
We have worked with local schools, social services and other churches to make sure that these gifts have reached the most vulnerable children.
If you would still like to contribute you can give a financial gift through our JustGiving Page - Be A Star Christmas Present Appeal
