We are delighted to announce we have received a grant from the Music for Dementia Paul & Nick Harvey Fund. This grant will fund a music based project in which families affected by dementia, can explore their music heritage together, learn new things about each other and continue to connect in a meaningful way. We hope this project will enable families to discover new ways of using music to support the person living with dementia at home. We have already gathered a diverse and insightful group of peer designers, and are getting ready to work with a few families in Brent to test different ways of delivering this project before we launch. If you are a multi-generational family, with a family member living with dementia and would like to be involved in this project, please contact Lynn Burling, Wellbeing Manager on: 020 8206 7503 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over the past few years Elders Voice has delivered two Memory Cafés in Kingsbury and Kensal Green, for older people with dementia and their families & carers. Unfortunately the cafés were forced to close during the pandemic and due to financial uncertainty, we have made the decision not to reopen. Although the cafés are now closed, we will continue to provide information & advice and endeavour to seek funding opportunities and provide project based activities such as Music for Dementia. If you have been affected by the closure of the Memory Cafés and wish to be informed of future projects, please contact Lynn Burling, Wellbeing Manager on: 020 8206 7503 / email@example.com.
