DEMENTIA care in Sheffield has been given a cash boost.
Lost Chord, which provides interactive music sessions for people with the condition, is celebrating after receiving £5,000 from Westfield Health.
The cash means Lost Chord can continue to provide one session every month for two residential homes in Sheffield for the rest of the year.
The charity uses professional musicians to help stimulate responses from people with dementia through music, song and dance.
The sessions are designed to increase self-esteem and promote wellbeing, particularly in people with dementia who are unable to walk, talk or communicate in any way.
Helena Muller, Lost Chord chief executive, said: “Dementia is one of the most appalling conditions.”
