Special tunes for Cornwallis Court residents

03 August 2017

Residents at Cornwallis Court in Bury St Edmunds were recently entertained by special tunes from dementia charity Lost Chord.

Members of the charity visited the Home in Suffolk to entertain residents with a range of musical performances, including a baby grand piano and a cello that was once owned by members of The Royal Family.

"We are very lucky at Cornwallis Court to have live musical entertainment come directly to us at home," a resident at Cornwallis Court said. "It is a really good feeling to get up in the morning and to know that a nice activity is going to happen."

Activities Coordinator Alex Winter said: "We try and arrange a number of stimulating activities for our residents, which help them socialise and celebrate life. Those with dementia especially can benefit from taking part in music sessions to reminisce."

Charity Lost Chord is dedicated to improving the quality of life and well-being of those living with dementia using interactive musical stimuli to increase their general awareness and self esteem.
