Workshops for people with dementia

Masthead image for the music makes us dementia workshops at The Brain Charity

Living with dementia can be frightening, isolating and often bewildering.

Music can play a vital role in the daily care for people living with dementia. It stirs memories, reduces agitation, stimulates endorphins and creates moments of joyful connection. But sometimes, it can be difficult to know where to start.

The Brain Charity’s Music Makes Us! project provides speech & language therapy via engaging singing workshops, and physiotherapy through dance sessions.

Where can I take part?

Sessions, which cover useful exercises, practical tips set to lively songs from the past, are held in care homes and community settings throughout Merseyside.

Our team of singers, dancers, professional speech and language therapists and physiotherapists ensure all participants have a safe and enjoyable experience.
