Musicians raise hospital’s pulse

Musical troubadours The Spitz raised awareness (and the roof) at Ealing Hospital as part of Dementia Awareness Week.

The collective, who regularly perform at residential homes, hospices and hospitals and entertained staff and patients with a two-person combo playing guitar double bass.

Alex Lukjaniec, Matron for Older People and Dementia Services, said: “It’s lovely to see people’s faces light up when the musicians come on the ward and start playing. People are just drawn to the music and everyone had a good dance. It really lifted everyone’s spirits.”

At present, around 25% of all hospital admissions have dementia in north-west London.
