Foxbridge House hits the right note with Vera Lynn sing-along

March 31st 2017

Residents at Foxbridge House sung their hearts out as they celebrated Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday by joining a nationwide sing-along.

Residents and the team at Foxbridge House enjoyed a day of singing in celebration of the forces’ sweetheart’s milestone birthday.

The local community joined the residents on the day, and enjoyed turning back the clock to sing the popular wartime song, “We’ll Meet Again”.

Home manager at Foxbridge House, Carol McCormack, 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.”

More than 50 Care UK homes took part in the nationwide sing-along, culminating in a filmed tribute to the national treasure.
