Music 4 Memory

Music 4 Memory has been running since 2008 and offers weekly community music therapy groups, smaller groups and 1:1 home visits. We welcome you to a friendly supportive environment where we play instruments, sing and dance, share favourite poems, stories and memories. Come and meet us all! You don't have to be 'musical' to benefit. Tea and biscuits always available.

Tibbs Dementia Foundation offers information and support for families, and many other services including bowls, walking football, allotment, facilitated talking groups for family supporters, talking groups for people with dementia, regular 'Tibbs 4 Tea' outings and seasonal celebrations.
