Music To Your Door

Our newst project is called ‘Music To Your Door’, where we visit people living with dementia in the Derbyshire Dales, at home, and sharing some music-making with them. We have been funded by Better Derbyshire Dales and some generous members of the public, so the service is completely free.

 

How It Works

 

When someone applies for the service, we will arrange a time to visit with their  Primary Contact Person (usually a relative or carer). This visit will last for about 20 – 30 minutes, and the Primary Contact Person will be present throughout.

 

We will bring our instruments and play and sing. People may even want to join in with us, singing or dancing. We have found that sharing music-making can be a very positive experience for our clients, and we aim for everyone who takes part in ‘Music To Your Door’ to enjoy it too!

 

During Covid-19, visits will take place outside the home, maybe on the doorstep or in the back garden. We will use social distancing and masks to make sure everyone is safe.

 

If you or someone you care for would like to

arrange a visit, please get in touch!
