Davers Court hits the right note with Vera Lynn sing-along

March 27th 2017

Residents at Davers Court sung their hearts out when they celebrated Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday by joining a nationwide sing-along.

Residents from Davers Court enjoyed a day of singing in celebration of the forces sweetheart’s milestone birthday.

Friends and family joined residents for the day, and enjoyed turning back the clock to sing the popular wartime song “We’ll Meet Again”.

Davers Court Day Club joined residents for a special Vera Lynn tea party and live entertainment from local musicians.

Home manager at Davers Court, Wendy Harvey, said: “We had a brilliant day celebrating Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday and the residents thoroughly enjoyed singing memorable hits from their younger years.

“Singing can be a powerful reminiscence activity, and many of the residents will have grown up listening to Vera Lynn’s music. Even when memories become particularly hard to remember, often music can still be recalled, so a group sing-along can be calming for those living with dementia and can encourage them to talk about memories from their childhood.”
