Manchester Camerata provide music therapy for dementia patients

Musicians from one of the UK's leading chamber orchestras have been performing in a residential care home to help people with dementia.

Members of Manchester Camerata have been encouraging residents at Station House Care Home in Crewe to play instruments to stimulate their minds.

Together with Care UK, scientists from the University of Manchester have been observing the sessions to study the effects of the music therapy.
