"The Opera North sessions allowed our residents to really open up emotionally giving us insights into their pasts that they had never shared before. It was great to see the happy faces of those with advanced dementia as they sung along and really engaged with the experience. Music is a very powerful tool in dementia care." 

Jo Bailey, Wellness Coordinator, Anchor Homes 

"I love the song that Joanna had us put together last week"
