Silent disco for older people returns to Moray

Silent discos were a success at Abbeyside last year.

A silent disco for older people will return to Elgin.

Residents of Abbeyside Care Home and Sing, Exercise and Tea (SET) Groups from Elgin, Buckie and Lossiemouth will get the chance to boogie to their own tunes on Thursday at Elgin Town Hall.

The event follows the success of a similar event at Dr Gray’s last year, where patients in the acute care for the elderly ward got to dance to music through specially designed headphones.

An eclectic mix of tracks, from the Killers to Andy Stewart, will be playing through the headphones on the day.

Carmen Gillies, development officer for Health and Social Care Moray said everyone was looking forward to the day.

She said: “This is a great opportunity for the older people of Moray to experience the benefits of music and movement whilst surrounded by old and new friends.

“Community connections and social interaction is vital in creating more connected and cohesive communities and that actions of kindness have greater traction in our society.

“Through partnership working with Dance North, we can achieve more together and inspire others to help tackle social isolation and loneliness whist supporting each other.”

The event is being run by Dance North in partnership with the Moray Community Health and Wellbeing Development Team.
