Mills Meadow hits the right note with Vera Lynn sing-along

March 28th 2017

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

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

Residents enjoyed turning back the clock to sing the popular wartime song “We’ll Meet Again”, and celebrated the milestone with a slice of birthday cake with family and friends.

Marie Reeve, home manager at Mills Meadow, 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.

“It was great to be joined by family and friends for this special occasion.”

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