[TEMP] Coming Soon

Palma Silva is a resident at Tithe Farm Care home who is originally from Portugal. Due to the illness Dementia, Palma has reverted to speaking Portuguese. She would reluctantly join in group activities and exercises but would never join in singing along. One afternoon, Magda, a member of staff decided to play some Portuguese songs on her own iPhone for Palma. The next day, Magda went that extra mile by providing a set of earphones for Palma so the latter could hear well. Suddenly, to everyone amazement, Palma started singing along and became oblivious to where she was or who was listening to her. Listening to Portuguese music made Palma less agitated that evening. From that day onwards, Palma would listen to her Portuguese music and sing along in the sitting room with all the other residents and staff and she became much calmer than usual.

Residents at Tithe Farm are very excited about the forthcoming trip to see the Christmas lights in the surrounding area. Check back soon for photos!

The Royal Albert Hall Songbook was here on Tuesday 14 November at 10.30 to 11.30am.

Residents as well as relatives were happy listening to the team from the Royal Albert Hall performing for us today. They reminisced over the varied songs picked by the musicians. It was great to see them interacting with the musicians and listening attentively to the short story on Prince Albert and the construction of the Hall. A great day was had by everyone. !!!
