Bristol After Stroke
Bristol After Stroke is an independent local charity helping people rebuild their lives after stroke. Their services offer a unique combination of practical, social, emotional and psychological support to stroke-affected people and their carers and loved ones.
Bristol Beacon is a music charity and venue which offers a diverse programme of music for all plus an extensive creative learning and community engagement programme and targeted programme for different age groups including the elderly. We believe in the power of music to break down barriers, transform lives, and celebrate this in everything we do.
Bristol Music Trust
BMT utilises the power of music to enhance the quality of life of older people living with dementia. Activities include “Mail a Musician” concerts for the elderly, many with dementia. The Grateful Society has contributed towards a Dementia Friendly Concert, broadcast live and streamed to care homes across the country, featuring the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Simon Rattle. “That’s the most movement I have seen in a month” said a dementia sufferer’s wife after her husband was dancing listening to live musicians.
