‘It’s very relaxing – if you have a worry or trouble it seems to clear it and let it go’
We have been running dementia-friendly music sessions in Brighton & Hove since 2014, and since 2016 have been commissioned by NHS Brighton & Hove CCG to deliver 70 sessions per year (currently as part of the 2020-2022 BHCC Ageing Well partnership).
We offer a range of sessions for and with people living with dementia:
- twice-weekly online / in-person (restrictions permitting) group music sessions
- bespoke sessions in seniors’ housing and residential settings
- one-to-one bedside sessions via Zoom, with people living with dementia and carer / family member
- music training for carers
We also have a range of resources available, including musical videos to watch at home.
