Alzheimer’s Society ‘Singing for the Brain’
A friendly, structured singing group for people with dementia and their carers in a stimulating and social environment. Hidden in the fun are activities which build on the well-known preserved memory for song and music in the brain. Even when many memories are hard to retrieve, music is especially easy to recall.

The group takes place every Tuesday from 10.30am – 12.30pm at Hargrave Hall, Hargrave Road, N19 5SP

Please call the Alzheimer’s Society on 020 7561 4820 for more information and to book your place.
