Alzheimer Scotland Lewis and Harris had been running a dementia café in Harris for several months with support from the Leverburgh Care home and Harris House care home. It was recently decided to make this a Singing Dementia Café!
The next concert is planned for 19th December 2014 at the Grianan Centre, West View Terrace, Stornoway.
We need a bigger venue for concerts as we can have 50+ people with dementia, family and friends attending this event. Local MSP Dr Alasdair Allan is attending the concert – himself a keen singer. This concert will have a mix of English and gaelic songs, old favourites and Christmas carol, the local school children singing gaelic Christmas carols which is a good way to promote positive images of people with dementia to young people.
