“It was like his Dementia went away for a moment!”

Mo is 88 years young and lives in Hullbridge, Essex and we have been providing visiting care to him in his own home for over 2 years. As with a lot of families across the UK, his family live far away and are unable to visit him regularly. It has been a difficult few months for Mo as his health is declining, which he is struggling to come to terms with.

His family wanted to invite him to one of their concerts as Mo’s daughter and son-in-law play in an orchestra band called “Five Star Swing”. Although they wanted Mo to come they thought it would be nice for Audrey, his main carer to attend with him. So both our Registered Manager Louise and Deputy Manager Kirsty attended along with Audrey who is Mo’s main carer. Mo has been finding it difficult to come to terms with his Dementia and reduced mobility; he rarely goes out with his friend Ray now and can become quite frustrated with himself.

Upon seeing his family perform on stage, he was visibly excited and enjoying himself singing and dancing along. Mo was so proud and loved watching his daughter and son-in-law perform. At Novus Care, we understand for those living with Dementia – music can help people improve their wellbeing, reduce agitation and can act as a prompt for reminiscing. His family said ‘It was like all his Dementia went away at that moment’.

We cannot wait to see Mo singing and dancing at the next concert!
