Dementia residents broke out into song as relatives visited them in lockdown
This is the heartwarming moment dementia residents broke out into song as their relatives visited them in lockdown. Footage shows a dozen elderly women bursting into song as their relatives peer through the carehome's window to watch.The pensioners continued to sing classics such as Que Sera, Sera while clasping daffodils. The choir currently involves 20 pensioners at Elizabeth House, Benfleet, Essex, and was set up as a way of entertaining the residents during the imposed self-isolation period to cease the spread of coronavirus. Gill Petters, 52, said: "It's just a lovely thing to see."We usually have singers in but that is all on hold now what with the coronavirus. "We had to think of different ways to engage and entertain the residents so we set up a choir last week. "Families have been in touch and say they absolutely love it. "We make sure we upload a video a day online too as it's the next best thing when you're unable to visit your elderly relative. "It's even touching for the staff as with dementia some of the residents struggle with the basics of conversation as they can't remember anything about themselves. "But when they sing a song it all comes flying back."The video was filmed on 22nd March 2020.
