Singing for the Brain is a service provided by Alzheimer's Society Barnsley which uses singing to bring people together in a friendly and stimulating social environment.

Singing for the Brain is a stimulating group activity, for people in the early to moderate stages of dementia and their carers.

Singing is not only an enjoyable activity, it can also provide a way for people with dementia, along with their carers, to express themselves and socialise with others in a fun and supportive group.

Hidden in the fun are activities which build on the well-known preserved memory for song and music in the brain. Even when many memories are hard to retrieve, music is especially easy to recall.

It is 3 per person for the session.

ROTHERHAMS FRIENDS OF YOUNG ONSET DEMENTIA .. - 22 Sep, 2014 - 13:16PM

Hello,

Rotherhams Friends of Young Onset Dementia, would like to invite you all to our 'Carols in the Park 2014' event.

We are a local charity, set up to provide help and support to those who are diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia in the Rotherham area.

Last year we held our first ever carol concert on the bandstand in Clifton Park, Rotherham which was a huge success.

On the 7th of December 2014 we are holding another carols concert, complete with our brass band.

There will be a lot of people there who have being diagnosed with dementia, their carers, friends and family.

Feel free to pop along, join in with the singing, have a cup of coffee and a mince pie.

There is parking closeby, access to the Bandstand is wheelchair accessable and everyone is welcome, best of all - its free!

All the details are on our event listed on both the Rotherham and Barnsley Town Talk sites.

Feel free to email us if you need any more information.

Thank you

Dave Cant
Rotherhams Friends of Young Onset Dementia
