The Power of Music
A Stockton based service working with young adults with disabilities have been able to host a musical celebration for people with Dementia.
Vision 25 support young adults with disabilities to promote independence and social inclusion.
Tees Valley Community Foundation were thrilled to award the grant to enable Vision 25 to host the musical event, led by Apollo Arts. Music has been shown to have a dramatic effect on people with dementia and encourages engagement through sensory stimulation, this can have a profound effect on both groups emotionally and behaviourally.
The groups enjoyed singing a variety of hits and had the opportunity to participate in an interactive section, playing a variety of percussion instruments.
