Piano Player - Care Home Milton


Sheerwater is a residential care home in Milton. We have approximately 60 residents, all of whom have dementia or severe memory loss.

We are looking for volunteers to play the piano for our residents whose day can be boosted by a good sing song around the piano. Some of our residents receive no visitors and loneliness can be a major problem. Being transported back to their younger days by hearing the tunes of their youth helps to improve the quality of life for our residents. This is a rewarding role that can be fun as well as challenging, and you can make a difference to the lives of vulnerable people.

Could you spare an hour or two on a regular basis?
