Our Dementia Choir Case Study

Social prescribing allows GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services to support their health and well-being.

NASP is a national charity that champions social prescribing.

We were approached by NASP to create a case study video that highlights the impact of social prescribing within the Nottingham ‘Our Dementia Choir’

‘Our Dementia Choir’ began as part of a documentary created for BBC1 in 2018 and is now a charity. It gives people with dementia, and their families, a safe space to enjoy music.

Our film shows social prescribing in action and how the power of music impacts people with dementia and their families. Kate Harper, a special prescribing link worker, summed it up perfectly by observing, “They’re living well with dementia, and that’s what it’s all about”
