Skylark House is inviting people in Horsham to join them on Monday 20th March, from 10.45am, to strike a chord for the forces’ sweetheart’s milestone birthday.
The home will also be joined by Ken Harvey, a local pianist from St Mark’s Church, who will be performing a selection of wartime songs.
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.
Skylark House will be joined by Care UK care homes across the country for the nationwide sing-along to celebrate this special occasion.
Devendra Lallchand, home manager at Skylark 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 Horsham for this special occasion.”
