Music has been proven to be beneficial for retaining memory in later life. When memory is failing a person, they are very likely to be able to recall a familiar melody

'Melodies for Memories' is an informal and fun music group for anyone who enjoys music and is affected by memory loss or concerned about memory.

The group is led by someone who has experience of using music to benefit people with memory difficulties. The group will give people with memory loss and their families/carers the opportunity to meet others who share an enjoyment for music.

You don’t need to be able to sing or play any instruments 

What to expect

The Melodies for Memories sessions will include a range of music activities that benefit people who are affected by memory loss, including;
basic memory exercises, singing along to popular and familiar songs via the "magic music box", watching musicians performing, film clips, fun quizzes and much more!

Tea, Coffee and treats included.

If you like the sound of our Melodies for Memories session and would like to know more about it, please get in contact.
