Singalong With Alice
The Care Home Entertainer that Connects
Alice's unique blend of singalong fun with activity (including chair-based movement to music) and music therapy stimulates residents of care homes, whether elderly, dementia or disabled, and improves their physical and also their mental health.
Supported by husband Marek on keyboard, Alice draws on her West End Dancer/Singer, Stand-up Comedy and Exercise Teacher experience to create a show that brings visible joy to the hearts of the people she connects with.

Alice has been a Care Home Entertainer in a variety of residential establishments, both for the elderly and for people with dementia. Aside from numerous awards and recognition, Alice has also been invited to be a guest speaker on her unique engagement approach when performing to people with dementia, at the prestigious Alzheimers Show.
Alice says "I love working with the residents at the Dementia care homes, and have learned so much by interacting with them. Many of them remember me from week to week. It is amazing the effect that music has. They seem to come alive when they are singing along to a song like Que Sera Sera for example, and remember all the words. Many of them get up to dance which is wonderful for their mood and well being. I find that interaction is the key, eye contact, smiling, laughing with each individual has a great effect. I have found that they also start to learn 'new' songs from week to week."
