Tips for…
Life at home – Keeping occupied

I can’t write out my music, but I just compose it and then forget about it. And it’s never the same the next time. It’s hugely liberating in a way. (Listen to Valerie Blumenthal’s Dementia Diary here.)

Chris plays a brass instrument. “Music has become more difficult, but I still do it.” Watch this short film ‘Dementia is my Kriptonite’ by Chris Norris here.

Nick has aphasia. He collects miserichords. Watch the film ‘Nick’s Miserichord’s here.

I play the mouth organ and am part of a singing group. Watch the film ‘That’s me by’ Trevor Aykroyd here.

I took up the flute. When Im playing music, the dementia just seems to fly out of the window. Music releases my dementia. Watch this film by Michael Andrews here.
