Upminster Dementia Choir has launched!

I am delighted that we have been able to set up a Dementia Choir in Upminster. We held our first session on the 18th June where we had tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes, followed by a bit of a warm up and then the choir.

One couple who joined us, sent me the following email:

‘Thank you so much for getting the dementia choir up & running. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed it along with my husband yesterday. I felt like a different person when we left. My Husband gave his usual response ” I enjoyed it, but can’t see the point” So, I told him I’d seen him smile, laugh, heard him sing, saw him speak to people he’d not met before, but most of all I’d seen him having fun & that was the whole point!! We will be there next week for sure. Thank you again, so much.’

Are you living with or caring for somebody with Dementia and think the choir would be of interest? If so, come along on the 9th July, All Saints Church Hall, 10.30am-11.00am for tea and coffee, with the choir starting from 11.00am-12.00. The session is £1.00 per person. We would love you to join us!
