Living with dementia does not have to mean doing without the joys of listening to live music and dancing. And even if you don’t like dancing, you might just enjoy other people doing the twist!. This was today’s live music and dancing hour at the Lodge, our small community for people living with the later stages of dementia.
Naomi led the Cottage choir in an Easter sing-along today, with some Easter-themed songs and even an Easter quiz. None of us were able to answer one of her quiz questions which was: why does Easter fall on a different date from year to year ? Not only did none of know the answer, Naomi didn’t know herself ! Answers on a postcard please…..
Not everyone wants to join in the sing along, and that is just fine of course. There is nothing quite like curling up with a book in the quiet lounge, reading about history.
