VIDA Healthcare offer specialist dementia care in Harrogate.  A beautiful home for those with dementia, with staff that have a caring and innovative approach to their work.

One such example is the use of music in dementia care.  Songs are stored in a part of the brain that makes them easier to recollect, and therefore music has the power to trigger big smiles and huge breakthroughs.

Chris went along to VIDA Hall in Starbeck to watch their weekly sing-along!
