Personal experience of living and supporting a parent with Alzheimer’s, Chris has seen and understands the power that music has over the people suffering with this disease. This condition is Britain’s biggest killer and most debilitating illness both for the sufferer, their families and carer’s. Music brings light into a very dark world and allows a little respite from confusing to the original personality.
