Singing for the Brain

Alzheimer’s Society Northumberland is running virtual singing sessions for people in the early to moderate stages of dementia and their carers.

Singing for the Brain sessions use singing to bring people with dementia together in a friendly and stimulating activity using Zoom to connect with others. The activity has moved online due to the current pandemic.

Singing for the Brain is based around the principles of music therapy and singing. In between songs the group chats and reminisce about the songs and what they meant to them. The sessions are run by experienced leaders and volunteers along with the support of a member of staff.

The sessions are open to all Northumberland residents and take place online via Zoom on the first and third Wednesday of every month from 2.00pm to 3.00pm.
