Singing groups for people with dementia by Diana Kerr

Music is important to us as a species, and it can be particularly important to people with dementia. Singing in a group can improve a person's mood, recall, self-esteem and overall quality of life. Whether you're a trained musician or someone who has no training but can hold a tune (and that is almost everyone), this book will give you guidance on every stage of setting up a singing group for people with dementia: choosing songs, structuring sessions, choosing and setting up a venue, training volunteers, finding funding, keeping participants safe and ensuring that everyone has a good time.
