Brook Court celebrates Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday with nationwide sing-along

March 16th 2017

Brook Court is inviting the community to join a nationwide sing-along to celebrate Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday.

Brook Court is inviting people in Kidderminster to join them on Saturday 18th March, from 10.30am, to strike a chord for the forces’ sweetheart’s milestone birthday.

As part of the celebrations, Shelia Wood will be on hand to entertain guests with Vera Lynn classics and get everyone in the party spirit. Friends and relatives will also be joining in the celebrations, and cake and refreshments will be on offer for visitors. The Brook Court team will also be embracing the wartime theme and wearing typical attire from the period.

Residents and the team at the care home will be ensuring visitors are pitch perfect for the rendition of the popular war-time song “We’ll Meet Again”, with lyrics available and tasty treats on hand for all.

Brook Court will be joined by Care UK care homes across the country for the nationwide sing-along to celebrate this special occasion.

Joanne Gill, home manager at Brook Court, commented: “We are all looking forward to taking a walk down memory lane and having a good sing-along to celebrate Vera Lynn’s milestone birthday. Singing can be a powerful reminiscence activity, and Vera Lynn has written a number of iconic songs that many residents are likely to have grown up listening to.

“Even when memories become particularly hard to remember, often music can still be recalled, so a group sing-along can often be very calming for those living with dementia, and can encourage them to talk about memories from their childhood.

“We are thrilled to be joining Care UK care homes across the country and look forward to welcoming the people of Kidderminster for this special occasion.”

The team at Brook Court care home in Kidderminster provides ‘outstanding’ care that makes a difference to residents’ lives.
