Vol­un­teers needed for Alzheimer’s ser­vice

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

VOL­UN­TEERS are be­ing sought to lend a hand to peo­ple suf­fer­ing from Alzheimer’s in Bea­cons­field.

The Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety in the town is look­ing for vol­un­teers to help set up the room it uses for its Singing in the Brain ser­vice.

The ser­vice, which is de­signed around the prin­ci­ples of mu­sic ther­apy and singing, pro­vides so­cial in­ter­ac­tion in a safe and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment for lo­cal peo­ple af­fected by de­men­tia.

The so­ci­ety says that there are 1,578 peo­ple liv­ing with de­men­tia in the Bea­cons­field area and the char­ity is look­ing for lo­cal res­i­dents to set out the chairs and ta­bles be­fore the group starts on Fri­day morn­ings at the Fitzwilliams Cen­tre, in Wind­sor End.

It is es­ti­mated that it would take no more than 15 min­utes to lay out and clear away the room each time.

For more in­for­ma­tion on the role, or other volunteering roles in the area, email jane.penton@ alzheimers.org.uk or call 01296 718 956.
