Memories and music make for a joyous afternoon

2 October 2019

Singing for the Brian performance

Residents at our St Catherine's Nursing Home in Newcastle have thoroughly enjoyed a specialist performance which mixes music, fun and theatre.

A visit by John Casey's Singing for the Brain performance saw our home's spacious lounge packed with residents, staff and visitors – all singing along together and reminiscing to songs and projected photographs from yesteryear.

The performance was fun for everyone and designed especially for people with dementia, stimulating memories through music in a happy, social setting - and our residents certainly made the most of the vibrant atmosphere.

Waving Union Jacks and joining in with classics like 'Pack up your Troubles' and 'It's a Long Way to Tipperary', enthusiastic singing could be heard throughout the home.

The catchy tunes were being hummed right into the evening and quite a few happy memories were shared, too.
