masthead image - music makes us move dementia workshops physiotherapy through dance.

For people living with dementia, keeping active can be increasingly difficult as the condition progresses. If you, or someone you know, experiences dementia, you’ll know that the possibility of a fall can cause real concern.

The Brain Charity’s Music Makes Us! Move workshops provide integrated exercises beneficial for agility and mobility, packaged as fun, simple and engaging dance routines set to popular songs from the past.

By doing these exercises, participants can:
