Singing for the Mind – Farnham

Singing for the Mind begins at 2pm. There is the opportunity to have a chat over a cup of coffee from 1.30pm onwards, followed by a sing-along led by professional singer Barbara Rayner. It’s a great opportunity to share memories and a love of songs of all styles. Come along and enjoy anything from jazz and showstoppers to gospel and folk in a friendly and welcoming environment.

The power of music for dementia

Music, and singing in particular, has been shown to boost brain activity and plays an important part in slowing the progress of dementia. The Alzheimer’s Society lists five examples of the power of music:

  1. Music evokes emotions that bring memories.
  2. Musical aptitude and appreciation are two of the last remaining abilities in dementia patients.
  3. Music can bring emotional and physical closeness.
  4. Singing is engaging.
  5. Music can shift mood, manage stress and stimulate positive interactions.

Singing for the Mind is a collaboration between Right at Home GF and Farnham Maltings, enabling people living with dementia to continue enjoying life in the community. It complements the Dementia Delay Programme.
