Bishops Cleeve Care Home Finds Harmony with Mindsong Dementia Singing Group

13 March 2024

In a heartwarming tradition, Bishops Cleeve care home has become a beacon of joy every other Monday afternoon as it welcomes Mindsong, a group of dedicated volunteers on a mission to uplift spirits through song.

Residents eagerly anticipate the arrival of Mindsong, who bring with them an hour of musical enchantment tailored especially for those living with dementia. With melodies echoing through the halls, old favorites like “I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles,” “Bring Me Sunshine,” and “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” transport residents to cherished moments of the past.

Led by the passionate voices of Mindsong, residents find solace and connection in the melodies, forging new bonds and reliving precious memories. The session culminates with the timeless classic “We’ll Meet Again,” leaving hearts full and spirits lifted.

Mindsong’s commitment to serving the community extends beyond Bishops Cleeve care home, with tailored services offered across Gloucestershire. From clinical music therapy sessions to volunteer-led singing in care homes, Mindsong’s initiatives aim to promote wellbeing, decrease isolation, and foster new relationships through the power of music.

The turnout for the sessions is consistently heartening, with a bustling crowd of residents eagerly gathering in the foyer, escorted by caring staff members ready for the 2.30pm start. The joyous atmosphere often attracts family members, who happily join in the musical festivities, creating cherished moments of togetherness.

Following the uplifting session, residents and guests unwind with a comforting cup of tea or coffee, accompanied by delicious cakes that add a sweet touch to the afternoon’s camaraderie.

As Mindsong continues to spread its message of hope and connection through song, Bishops Cleeve care home remains a shining example of the transformative power of music in enriching the lives of those living with dementia and their loved ones.
