MindCare Dementia Choir

In September 2019, MindCare Dementia Support launched a choir for people with dementia who attend the service’s activity Centres.

The choir has been going from strength-to-strength, helping to maintain the wellbeing of clients living with dementia. MindCare staff have observed how clients are becoming more engaged with people and the environment around them, exhibiting an increased sense of achievement and belonging. One client said, “I normally don’t like singing but I am loving this!”

The MindCare Dementia Choir has been practicing for a London dementia choir competition but for the MindCare team it’s not about competing or winning, it’s about bringing out the person beyond the dementia, to reminisce, talk, laugh, sing, create new memories and feel valued as a person.
