Oak House is inviting the community to join a nationwide sing-along to celebrate Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday.
Oak House is inviting people in Slough to join them on Tuesday 21st March, from 2.30pm, to strike a chord for the forces sweetheart’s milestone birthday.
The team has also invited members of the Pines Supported Living and Day Centre to join residents for the celebrations.
Residents and the team at the care home will be ensuring visitors are pitch perfect for the rendition of the popular wartime song “We’ll Meet Again”, with lyrics available and tasty treats on hand for all.
Oak House will be joined by Care UK care homes across the country for the nationwide sing-along to celebrate this special occasion.
Julie Bignell, home manager at Oak House 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 Slough for this special occasion.”
