has anyone on here heard of Lost Chord?
they perform classical music for people with Dementia, and they are fantastic to watch.

I found this video of them at a Dementia Cafe in South Yorkshire

They were featured on some program very early this morning. Was it Secret Millionaire?

it is magnificent what they do,
I know someone who works closely with people with advanced dementia and she knew a man who hadn't spoken for 3 years, hadn't tried moving from his wheelchair for the same amount of time.

His carer went along to one of the concerts and within minutes he was up and dancing around the room, it was a wonderful thing to see.

his carer was astonished, she couldn't believe she'd been pushing him round in that chair for so long!
