COME ZOOM WITH US!

A Program of Duke Dementia Family Support Program

COME ZOOM WITH US! is an umbrella of four virtual services to provide opportunities for engagement, connection, and stimulation for people living with dementia (PLWD) and educational webinars for their families in the face of unprecedented challenges caused by COVID-19.

Come Sing with Us!

Click here to see former performances. Enjoy and watch them as often as you would like. 

Tuesday, January 26 at 4PM via Zoom

Performer: William Dawson, Duke Health Performing Arts Coordinator

Our monthly Come Zoom with Us! will continue in 2021, but with a twist. We are going to rotate between our Facebook Live program and an interactive music opportunity on Zoom for registered participants. We understand how challenging it can be to logon to the Facebook viewings and hope this alleviate stress and allows for more of a connection.

We have partnered with the enthusiastic and charismatic William Dawson and look forward to him being our musician for our January and March Zoom gatherings. We will continue to provide families with lyrics for all future events and look forward to you joining us.

Click here the day of the event for what is sure to be a fun afternoon!
