Dementia Action Week is a special time when communities come together to raise awareness and show support for those living with dementia. Our Brookdale Specialist Dementia Day Centre, recently held two remarkable events to commemorate this meaningful week.

For the first event of the week, Brookdale’s was privileged to have Rachel Mercer, a talented singer, join us for our first Dementia Action Week event. Rachel mesmerised everyone in attendance with her beautiful voice and heartfelt performances. Her melodies created an atmosphere of joy, lifting the spirits of both our attendees and staff members. We are immensely grateful to Rachel for generously sharing her time and talent with us, and we applaud her for making the event truly special. We have been told that one of our attendees in particular, Eddie, has been talking about Rachel Mercer, the cowgirl singer, since her performance.

Brookdale’s second event featured a delightful visit from the Local Vocals choir group. The choir group, comprising dedicated individuals with a passion for music, brought their harmonious voices to our day centre. Staff members, attendees, and choir members joined forces for a heart-warming sing-along session. The power of music was evident as smiles filled the room, and the shared experience created a strong sense of community. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to the Local Vocals choir group for their captivating performance and their commitment to making a positive impact.

The two events held at Brookdale Specialist Dementia Day Centre during Dementia Action Week were resounding successes, bringing joy, connection, and a sense of togetherness to all involved. We express our deepest gratitude to Rachel Mercer for her enchanting performance and the Local Vocals choir group for their inspiring visit.
