Sing la la la


The Rose Lodge choir is coming along just fine. The first public performance will be at our Summer Garden Party on 28 July at 2pm. The choir is open to people in the community who live with dementia, and their carers. The choir meets every Thursday at 11 am at Rose Lodge. Please call Joanna on 01395 227071 if you would like to join.

Not really that serious!

A great turn-out to the special ‘Singing for the brain’ Christmas event at Brixington Church today, with six residents joining in. It was a lovely sociable afternoon and not at all as serious as this picture would suggest!

What would we do without our Rosemobile ?

It is getting used pretty well every day, what with outings and providing transport to our day care residents. This picture is from an outing today to the local ‘Singing for the brain’ sining circle. Rita and Elfie both love to sing and enjoy this weekly outing tremendously.

Singing for the brain…

For a few years now, The Alzheimers Society has been running a fantastic scheme called ‘Singing for the brain’, where people with dementia and their carers come together regularly to sing. Until recently there was no such scheme in Exmouth, but recently a scheme was started, meeting at Brixington Community Church Hall, Churchill Road, in Exmouth (For further details contact Paul King on 01278 663 760) every Wednesday from 2 pm to 4 pm.  A few of the Rose Lodge residents really enjoy singing so we are supporting the scheme enthusiastically. Not only is there great singing but also the opportunity to meet with other people – and they serve some great teas and coffees.

The picture is from the pre-singing tea and biscuits today.

Outing to ‘Singing for the brain’

The Alzheimer’s Society has for some time run their ‘Singing for the brain’ clubs in various parts of the country, and fortunately they have launched one in Exmouth this month. A couple of our residents joined in today and had a great time. We will make this a weekly outing for those residents that enjoy a good singalong.

The ‘Singing for the brain’ is held every Wednesday from 2 pm to 4 pm at  the Brixington Community Church Hall, Churchill Road, Exmouth. For further details contact Paul King on 01278 663 760.
