Thank you to the players and singers from the Coda Ukulele band for visiting Queensmount care home to perform for the older residents there at the weekend.
In the past year Coda has delivered more than 120 music workshops in Bournemouth care homes, reaching over 1500 older people. Our work can have a profound impact on people in care, especially those in the later stages of dementia, and our music programme is transforming some of the care homes in the town through a diet of regular workshops, staff training and through visits from groups like our Ukulele Band and the Coda Community Choir. Thanks to everyone for giving up their time!
If you know of a care home that might benefit from Coda's music programme please let us know by clicking here. Or if you'd like to play the ukulele in our band, please come along on a Wednesday night at 7.30pm. Beginners are welcome!
We've highlighted just three of the many things on offer at Coda this autumn but please check back here for more info on other events, or join the Coda Facebook page for regular updates!
