As part of its commitment to becoming a Dementia Friendly Community, Radstock Town Council is continuing to support the Singing for the Brain group for people living with dementia and their carers. Singing for the Brain is a programme developed by the Alzheimer's Society for people with memory problems. It promotes communication through singing which can help with speech, concentration, focus and motivation. The group offers valuable social opportunities and the emphasis is on relaxation, participation and fun and all new members are very warmly welcomed.
The Council is proud to support such a valuable activity and are keen to press ahead with other initiatives.
The group meet every other Thursday 2.00 to 3.30pm at Writhlington Village Hall and the activity is free of charge, but with a suggested donation of £2. To find out more about attending Singing for the Brain, please call 01225 396 678 or call the group’s co-ordinator Cecilia on 07795 344 936
