Anne Harris came along to the Cafe last week to tell us more about the new dementia choir “Young at Heart” in Celbridge. The choir meets on Wednesday mornings from 11am to 1pm in Celbridge Mill. All are welcome, just drop by to find out more information or contact Anne directly at Anne.Harris1@HSE.ie

Anne has previously been involved with the Alzheimer Café in Naas and also with the “Past Times” dementia choir in Naas (for more details click here). Singing, listening to the music and getting together in a fun and social environment is very good for people with dementia and it gives those who have always loved singing a chance to continue with an activity they love in an non-pressured environment. It also gives those of you who would love to try singing, a chance to do just that.
