Milner House is inviting friends and family to join them on Monday 20th March to strike a chord for the forces’ sweetheart’s milestone birthday.
Residents will be celebrating the milestone with a slice of birthday cake and a tuneful rendition of Vera Lynn’s popular wartime song “We’ll Meet Again”.
Milner House will be joined by Care UK care homes across the country for the nationwide sing-along to celebrate this special occasion.
Julie Billington, home manager at Milner 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 look forward to celebrating with family and friends for this special occasion.”
