Singing for Seniors
Susan worked for two years with the Alzheimer’s Society as a Singing for the Brain leader and has also worked with Music in Hospitals, Live Music Now and Sing for your Life. She is aware of what is going on in the field of music and dementia research, such as the Music Reawakening report by Arts 4 Dementia and the launch of the recent report on Music and Dementia. She is also a Dementia Friends Champion, and continues to run singing workshops in care homes as well as offer a training programme and resources to various care facilities, so that more people can benefit from the positive things that regular access to music can bring.
We believe in the power of music to improve the overall wellbeing of the person with dementia as part of their daily care plan.
