Over 1.1 million Canadians are currently affected either directly or indirectly by some form of dementia

In the United States 5.8 million people have also been diagnosed with the disease. Many family and friends wonder how best to support their loved one or friend as the disease progresses.

Voices in Motion is a multigenerational choir that intersects the worlds of research and music. People, young and old, sing together and the results for many have been life-changing. In addition to a joy-filled choral experience, singers benefit from belonging to a supportive community where they experience love, connection and support. These life-giving moments of music foster increased socialization, cognitive function, meaningfulness, and a multigenerational appreciation of others.
