The team at a Welwyn home care company have been singing from the same song sheet as they launched their latest campaign as part of Dementia Action Week (May 21 to 27).
Home Instead has created a ‘SongsToRemember’ of favourite songs that CAREGivers and their clients love to sing together - and plans to get a 1,000 people to join in.
As part of Dementia Action Week (May 21 to 27), staff at the Welwyn office held a community singalong event to get as many people as possible using their voices to support the campaign.
The Dementia Friendly Community Cafe took place at Our Lady's Family Centre in Woodhall, Welwyn Garden City and everyone was invited to come along and help raise awareness about dementia and the power of music.
The Hatfield Rotary kindly donated £100 to the café.
Heather Simms, owner of Home Instead Welwyn, said: “Our most recent Dementia Friendly Community Café was a big success and we want to thank everyone who came out to join us for such a lovely event. We would also like to thank the Hatfield Rotary Club for their kind donation.
“Singing together is a lovely way for our CAREGivers and their Cients to bond with each other – it opens up a whole new avenue for communication, and is great fun at the same time.”
Home Instead specialises in providing at-home care for the elderly, allowing people to remain independent for as long as possible.
It is the only home care company to offer dementia training that is City & Guilds accredited, making it's CAREGivers experts in supporting people to live life well with Dementia.
