Social excercise to music led by participants
Jabadao is music and movement and is ideal for people with dementia. There is no right or wrong way to take part – you just ‘go with the music’.
At BIADS we love Jabadao and have seen some amazing results from the groups which give people with dementia a chance to participate in light exercise whilst socialising with their peers. Jabadao sessions are for ten weeks.
Each Jabadao session will last for one hour and then there will be time for a cuppa when partners join us.
Referral / Criteria
Jabadao sessions are for people with dementia and are run in partnership with Barnsley Mental Health Team Physiotherapists. Referral is through your BIADS Carer Support worker and where necessary an assessment by the physiotherapists may be undertaken but rest assured people can be suitable for this activity at all stages of dementia and we have had amazing results for our members. Carers attend a Carer Support group of their peers at the same time.
