Music and Movement for the Mind

16th January 2020, 7:26pm | By Joanna Pazucha |

Weekly Music and Movement for the Mind sessions organised by Alzhemier’s Support are held every Tuesday in Mildenhall village hall from 10.30am to 12 noon and new members are very welcome.

The sessions are carefully structured to be both stimulating and fun. Although well-loved classic songs are part of the mix, the group also learn new tunes, sing rhymes and action songs that help physical co-ordination, and tackle harmonies, rounds and partner songs.

The singing sessions alternate weekly with gentle exercise classes. Instructor Pash Ashley says: “A lot of the things we do replicate what people do at home, like sitting down, standing up, manual dexterity such as moving their fingers and wrists. We’re exercising the mind and muscles that people use every day.”

Both singing and movement sessions are led by experienced trained leaders who are supported by volunteers. It’s a very friendly group and there is no need for prior experience or expertise.

To find out more or to come along, call Alzheimer’s Support on 01380 739055 or go to their website.
