For people with dementia, music therapy provides a vital opportunity to express emotions and interact with others in a safe and supportive environment.

Music therapy gives people living with dementia a chance to express themselves, to communicate without needing to find the right words.

MHA is committed to providing music therapy free of charge to all residents with dementia who will benefit from it, but we need your help!

A donation from you could help in the following ways:

  • £30 could pay for an individual music therapy session, giving someone with dementia the opportunity to express their feelings.
  • £45 could pay for a group music therapy session, allowing people to interact and enjoy a shared experience.
  • £170 could pay for a set of handheld instruments, including drums, tambourines and maracas, providing the opportunity for people with dementia to experiment with different sounds and maintain their co-ordination skills.
  • £360 could pay for a 12 week course of music therapy sessions for one person, easing anxiety and improving their overall feeling of well-being.
