Leicester Musical Memory Box

LMMB run regular sessions for people with memory loss and dementia along with their carers.

The sessions start with refreshments and a social time followed by a warm up including gentle seated exercises and breathing. The main part of the session is focussed on the use of popular and classical music from films/ TV/ shows to evoke memories and enhance well being.

This session runs on the first Tuesday of each month.
