Music and Memories
Music to feed the brain and tea and cake to enjoy together, for people living with dementia and their carers.
Music and Memories is a singing music group where we sing old, familiar songs and learn a few new ones. We have a go at singing simple rounds and at playing percussion instruments along with some of the songs.
We ask that each person is accompanied by a carer, but it need not be the same person every session.
In 2020 we won the Community Group Award organised by JPI media in association with local newspapers in the Lancaster and Morecambe area.
*please note our meetings are currently postponed due to Covid – 19 but we are hoping to resume our meetings in September.
