The Alzheimer’s Society’s Singing for the Brain service has won £49,000 from the Big Lottery People’s Millions to develop more singing groups across Devon and Cornwall. The Alzheimer’s Society would like to thank everyone for their votes and messages of support.
Singing for the brain is a unique service provided by Alzheimer’s Society which uses singing to bring people together in a friendly and stimulating environment. It helps reduce social isolation and promotes well-being for people living with dementia and their carers.
Devon and Cornwall are rural communities with a high incidence of dementia with limited support networks and so these groups are in a great deal of demand. The Alzheimer’s Society is delighted to have the opportunity to expand their services within the region and reach more people with Alzheimer’s and their carers.
