Why Singing in Care?
Singing revitalises our bodies and instantly releases tension. As ones emotions flow freely there’s still room for fun and connection. And, yes, even room for improved neural function. Singing activates those parts of the brain that appear lost in dementia and helps restore the former vibrance of the person.
