Dementia patients and their caregivers in the Brainerd lakes area are invited to join a new choir designed specifically for them.

A volunteer group created a dementia choir that will gather at 7 p.m. Mondays starting Nov. 26 at Zion Lutheran Church in Brainerd.

"Multiple studies have found that the ability to recall music and nurture singing are among that last to areas of the brain to be affected by dementia," a news release stated. "Music truly connects us, and for those living with dementia, music therapy provides a way to connect with loved ones. People with early to mid-stage Alzheimer's disease and other dementias note increased self-esteem, confidence and a strong sense of belonging after singing."
