Care home residents sings for Parkinsons sufferers

Two Care home residents singing for Parkinson’s sufferers

A CARE home resident has rekindled her love of singing after joining a choir dedicated to raising awareness of Parkinsons disease.

Barbara Millican thought she would never sing in a choir again after moving into Hazelgrove Court Care Home, in Saltburn-by-the-Sea, in October 2017.

However, the home’s activities coordinator, Sharon Lewis, found the Tremeloes Parkinson’s Choir, which both she and Barbara have since joined.

The choir, named after the tremors those with Parkinson’s experience, recently performed at Saltburn Community Centre as part of Parkinson’s Awareness Week.

Barbara said: “I like being part of a choir, just like before I lived at Hazelgrove. It’s lovely to be able to perform again as well.”
