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

Home news

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

Residents at Cavell Court 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”.

Residents and visitors enjoyed watching a documentary based on Vera Lynn’s life, and enjoyed refreshments including a special afternoon tea-complete with homemade birthday cake. 

Customer relations manager at Cavell Court, Samantha Woods, 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.”
