Music for the Mind


In conjunction with Home Instead Havant, OmniArts presents Music for the Mind: a FREE group for people with dementia and memory problems.

There are currently two groups running.

Merchistoun Hall in Horndean, held on the last Wednesday of every month, from 10.15-11.45am.

Methodist Church, Emsworth, held on the second Wednesday every month from 2.00 – 3.30pm

This is a singing activity led by Becki Short, a trained singing teacher, to give an uplifting and fun experience. Bring the one you care for with you to a relaxed setting where they can be supported and join in. The sessions start with a gentle physical and vocal warm up, and instruments are handed round. Attendees choose songs from the songbook, and we sing and play them, with a short tea break, and a vocal cool down at the end of the session. Every session is relaxed, and flows organically with those attending. Sometimes there is reminiscing and story telling, sometimes dancing, and sometimes attendees bring their own musical talents to light as well!
