Who we are
Lost Chord is an innovative charity dedicated to promoting the well being of people who struggle to live with dementia by providing interactive musical sessions in residential care homes and day centres. We operate around the UK in:
- South & West Yorkshire
- North Nottinghamshire
- North Derbyshire
Highly trained professional musicians produce a varied programme designed to stimulate responses from people living with dementia who maybe unable to talk or communicate in any way.
- Some speak for the first time in months.
- Those who have not spoken for some time sing all the words to familiar songs in the right order.
- Those with aggressive tendencies become visibly calmed by the music.
This helps to confirm clinical evidence that there are certain areas of the brain associated with music that remain potentially responsive, when all other areas have deteriorated. This inspires us to continue making a positive impact.
There are over 700,000 people diagnosed with dementia in the UK. By 2025 this figure will rise to 1 million!
Please give geneously to help the forgotten and the elderly.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
