Join us – Music for Dementia
You’ve got this!
By joining us you are adding your voice to our campaign for music to be recognised and valued across society as a necessity for people living with dementia.
34.5 million people in the UK – that’s more than half the population – know someone living with dementia. It touches everyone, both the old and young, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends.
The stark truth is that the number of people dignosed with dementia is predicted to almost double by 2040 to 1.6 million.
Until we have a cure for dementia, we must work to help improve quality of life.
We can all play a role because we have the wonderful gift of music which is proven to transform the quality of life for people living with this condition.
I believe in the power of music
By joining us, you are telling the world you believe in the power of music to transform the lives of people living with dementia and those around them.
The Music for Dementia campaign is conducting the choir and we need as many participants as possible to make as much music noise as they can, in tune with us.
Do one thing today
Doing one thing today will inspire others to join us. We need everyone singing from the same hymn sheet to make music readily available for people living with dementia.
