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

Home news

Larkland House is taking part in a nationwide sing-along to celebrate Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday.

Larkland House will be striking a chord for the forces’ sweetheart’s milestone birthday on Monday 20th March.

Residents and the team will be singing their rendition of the popular wartime song “We’ll Meet Again”, and will be joined by a local pianist for the occasion.

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

Caroline Walker, home manager at Larkland 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 celebrating this special occasion.”
