Alzheimer’s Society would like to thank Andrew Bernardi and the Bernardi Music Group for this wonderful concert to be held on Friday May 21st during Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Action Week. This concert will be streamed free of charge into Care Homes in and around the Horsham District and also to people affected by dementia from across the county.
Music can have an amazing impact on people with dementia. Where words fail, music speaks. A recent report on music and dementia highlighted the benefits of music therapy in potentially aiding the management of dementia related symptoms and improving quality of life of people living with dementia and carers.
However, the report also highlights that high-quality musical interventions are only available in five per cent of care homes.
We are truly grateful for Andrew for taking the time to arrange this concert. This concert will provide a wonderful window of pleasure and memories for those living with dementia in care homes in and around Horsham. Please do get your tickets now and prepare for music and musical memories.
There is now nearly 1 million people living with dementia in the UK, every penny we can raise means we can be here for people affected by dementia through the pandemic and beyond. People with dementia have been worst hit by the pandemic, accounting for over a quarter of all Coronavirus deaths in the UK.
Thank you again for your wonderful support and enjoy the concert.
