Mindsong volunteers visit Northleach residents
Residents at Northleach Court care home enjoyed a visit from volunteers at Mindsong, a Gloucestershire based charity that aims to reach people with dementia through music and song.
Group singing provides a great opportunity for everybody to interact and express themselves. Singing as a group may help to reduce the feeling of loneliness and bring people together with a sense of community and friendship.
Not only is singing enjoyable, but it is also good for health and breathing and helping residents to reconnect with their younger selves and bring back many memories.
For some, singing can bring brilliant energy to a group of people, helping them to become more alert and increasing confidence.
Many of our residents began clapping, singing along, laughing and even dancing to the music. You can watch our residents having a great time in the video below –
We all had a wonderful afternoon here at Northleach Court and are looking forward to inviting Mindsong back to the home very soon.
