Supporting people with dementia through the power of song

For over 10 years, Forget-me-not Chorus has been organising joy-filled singing sessions for people with all forms of dementia, as well as the families, friends and professional staff looking after them. Today, over 1000 people – from millennials to centenarians – participate in our singing sessions every week, pan Wales and now further afield too.

A welcome break from the daily routine

Dementia can be both isolating, debilitating, exhausting and stressful. Music – and especially singing – offers a respite from the relentless routine. Wherever we meet, whether you’re on Zoom or in the room, you’ll find joy, laughter & song.

So take a breath, and find your voice again!

More than a simple singalong

Led by a team of professional musicians, our sessions use music to communicate, to encourage engagement and interaction. It’s about more than simply singing old songs, or bringing back memories.

We regularly team-up with professional artists to create original works to share with the wider community, which foster a sense of worth and achievement.

So express yourself in song, and lift your spirits!

“FMNC has provided a place and time where we both can sing, laugh and interact with others in a safe and friendly environment. The sessions are led by people who show enthusiasm, warmth and joy in all that they do.”

Intergenerational Project

We are thrilled to have linked Llandough Primary School with Nazareth House Care Home, Cardiff and Machen Primary School with Cartref, Lakeside for a very special intergenerational project 'Across The Years'.

Over the past few months, primary school pupils and residents have been writing postcards to each other, and meeting on Zoom to sing songs of friendship with repertoire spanning 70 years of the Queen’s reign.
