Reminiscing with a record player …

Whilst the showroom is closed, I’m having a big tidy up and sort out at Happy Days workshop and showroom – and came across a replica vinyl record player … Before I knew it, I was playing all the oldies … The Beatles, Dianna Ross, Neil Sedaka and this … The New Seekers: Beg Steal or Borrow … The New Seekers won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1972.

We know music is wonderful for everyone and for people living with dementia, music often prompts people to sing along, sometimes remembering all the lyrics.

But it’s sometimes the ‘Act of Doing’ something which triggers memories – Getting out an old record player, putting the vinyl record in place, setting the needle on the record.

Ask around in your care home – you may have one in a store cupboard …

Here’s a tune form Happy Days … enjoy yours …
