Your donations help us to provide a social choir for people with dementia and their carers. When used as therapy, music and singing have been proven to improve the wellbeing of people living with dementia.
“There are people in the Alzheimer’s WA choir who have short term memory loss but can remember the songs they sang with their families in their younger years” says Alzheimer’s WA CEO Rhonda Parker.
Recently the Perth Symphonic Chorus held it’s annual ‘Summer Sing’ event and pledged to donate part proceeds from ticket sales to help fund the Alzheimer’s WA choir into 2018. However, more funding is needed to ensure the choir can continue.
If you would like to support the Alzheimer’s WA social choir, donate now and help give a voice to those who need it.
