Using music to support wellbeing and care for people with dementia

This fun, practical session offers you, as carer, support through music therapy.

 

No musical skills or fabulous voice necessary!

 

Together we’ll sing, play and explore the many proven ways in which music can support you, alongside the person you care for.

 

Led by our experienced music therapist, Fiona Taylor, this will be an enjoyable and supportive session for anyone looking at alternative ways to support in a caring role.

 

Come along either alone, or with the person you care for, and learn some new tips and tools.
