    Songs for You provides fortnightly singing sessions for people with dementia, their carers and older adults experiencing isolation to come together and sing a range of well-known songs plus some new ones in a safe and friendly environment. The project is vital for people who love music and singing or just want to be somewhere joyous and friendly – where they can share interests with others. There is always a chance for a cuppa and a piece of cake, plus laughter as well as plenty of singing.
