Scarlet House celebrates Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday with nationwide sing-along

March 16th 2017

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

Scarlet House is inviting people in Stroud to join them on Friday 17th March, from 2pm, to strike a chord for the forces’ sweetheart’s milestone birthday.

As part of the celebrations, a local Age UK choir will be joining residents for the sing-along, and all visitors will be treated to afternoon tea specially prepared by head chef Claire Taylor.

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.

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

Pyela Myale, home manager at Scarlet 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 Stroud for this special occasion.”
