Come and Sing Cafe
Project Type: Dementia
We gather for afternoon tea and then a programme of songs selected round a theme or requested by participants. We are in the pilot phase, having met twice, but it is going well. Most come from care homes, but we have two local families involved and hope to build on this as a way of connecting families with their loved ones in the moment.
Willie was quite passive and seemingly detached and not joining in the singing. he did not speak or make eye contact. However, after another guest sang he stood and volunteered a solo. He has a beautiful deep baritone. when he sat down to applause he was smiling, and he then sang along on the outside as wellas the inside.
