Music & Memories

Join Music in Hospitals & Care for Music & Memories, a weekly interactive session to support those living with dementia in care homes, specialist units and in the community.

Sessions are broadcast via YouTube Live and attendees are welcomed to share song requests and any stories or memories for the musicians to respond to and personalise the session. You can do this when registering on Music in Hospitals & Care’s website and there will also be the opportunity to send messages during the concert via the live chat function.

You can also contact the team to arrange a personal live stream session via YouTube, Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
