Berkshire Care Home Residents Revisit Their Youth Through The Power Of Music
Ahead of the anniversary of D-Day on June 6, residents at RMBI Care Co. Home Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh Court, in Wokingham, recently welcomed The D-Day Dollies, a music duo that performed songs from the 40s and 50s. The performers provided the residents with an afternoon of entertainment that crossed generations and united everyone listening.
The residents, who sang along, had the opportunity to reminisce and share fond memories. “The music definitely captured my younger days, and the harmonies were so enjoyable,” said resident Michael Holdstock. “The blended tones of the girls’ voices was wonderful!” Resident Iris, who loves dancing, added: “The music made my toes tap to the beat. It really cheered us all.”
Sharon Fletcher, one of the Activities Coordinators at Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh Court, said: “It was a delight to see the joy and emotion from residents and family members. The room was alight with the songs from the generation, including We’ll Meet Again and The White Cliffs of Dover.”
